THE REASONS TO GO ON A CYCLING TOUR IN TANZANIA
Whether it’s for a week or a month, exploring by bicycle is a great way to see a country and experience its culture.
Here are some awesome reasons why you should go on a cycling tour in Tanzania.
- DISCOVER WHAT MOTORISTS CAN’T SEE
When cycling in Tanzania, you will be traveling on the type of roads and at a speed where you will see and experience city neighborhoods and the countryside at a much more intimate level. When touring, you’ll come across small villages and trails that often go unnoticed from the major highways. In town, you discover those semi-secret restaurants, specialty stores, coffee shops, bakeries, and other establishments that are off the beaten path.
- GET OFF THE BEATEN ROAD
One of the best reasons to go cycle touring is to get away from the crowds and experience the real culture of a country. Skip the overrated tourist attractions, and head out into the country. Cycle through the countryside, enjoy the beautiful views, stop at small villages and chat with the local people. More than likely you’ll make new friends, learn about the culture and everything about them.
- NEW CHALLENGES & ADVENTURES
Cycling opens up new vacation and adventure opportunities. There are thousands of kilometers of bicycle trails, paths, and routes waiting to be discovered locally and abroad, and organized tours are one of the fastest growing sectors of the travel industry.
- RECONNECTION WITH NATURE
Living a busy urban life, spending the better part of every day indoors making small talk at the water cooler, one can feel a loss of connection in life. We live in our houses, offices, and cars, always far from nature; riding your bike is a way to reconnect.
Being surrounded by nature helps us feel more grounded, eases anxiety, and lowers stress levels, so it’s easy to see why prolonged time on your bike can help you reconnect with the world around you. When you feel grounded, you have an easier time dealing with stress and it’s easier to be more connected and focused on your tasks.
- GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
No surprise here, cycling produces zero pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. To combat the effects of global warming, we’re all going to have to take personal responsibility for reducing our carbon footprint in the coming years. Cycling is one of the great ways to do this.
- GUARANTEES A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
Cycle touring always delivers a unique experience. No matter where you plan on cycling, you never know who you are going to meet, where you might want to detour to, and even where you will spend the night can be a bit of a mystery. Cycle touring is one of the most flexible ways to travel, with so many different factors that can influence your trip. You can stumble across things you’d never have seen before. No two different cycle tours, or even a two day cycling tour, are ever the same.
- CYCLING WILL MAKE YOU ENLIGHTENED
Will benefit your well-being and that’s a fact. The combination of spending time outdoors and exercising is the best recipe for a healthy mind. It makes you happier, more productive and boosts your immune system
