BIKE 4 TOURISM

We all want to

30th May 2021

What we want?

Put everyone riding a bike!

How the event was born

No doubt this global pandemic crisis has abruptly changed our lives. We have all stopped hugging each other, being with all our family and friends. We were forced to isolate ourselves, to stop travelling, to change our routines at work.

Suddenly our world no longer seemed the same world. A lot of people lost their jobs, a lot of people got sick with this pandemic and suddenly, nothing is as it was.

We, Domitur and Algarve Nature Tours, saw one year of work destroyed in 15 days. We were forced to cancel all our clients’ trips, return the money and suddenly we were left with 3 years of lost work. The one in 2019, where we took care of the reservations of our clients who were travelling in 2020; the one in 2020, because there were no reservations and the one in 2021, because normally our clients book everything one year in advance. We still don’t know what 2022 will be like, but we predict it will take time to rebuild everything we lost at this stage.

However, we are not to lower our arms and not being able to offer the possibility to our clients to visit Portugal, we still want to transmit them hope! 

We wanted to create a fun moment.

 And we thought, why not call the world to participate? 

Why not do something great in which everyone can participate in the place where they live and in this way we can share experiences, know each other even if it is virtually. Show that we are united even though physically we have to be separated. We need to keep hoping that we will all travel again!

We believe that this will be the first of a gigantic wave of excellent initiatives that we can develop. A community initiative, that brings people together, that promotes responsible and sustainable tourism, that stimulates local commerce, supporting your city’s travel agencies. Because united we are stronger and we go further.

What is Bike4Tourism?

This is a worldwide bike event in which anyone can participate being in their own city or anywhere else in the world.

The goal is to gather as many participants as possible worldwide to reach a new World record using the bike.

Who is Bike4Tourism for?

Why should you participate?

Do you accept the challenge?

Will you be ready?

Where will Bike4Tourism take place?

The event is worldwide and therefore will take place in all countries that have a participant.

That is, in your country, at the time that is most convenient for you, you take the photo at the beginning of the route and send it to us. After you finish your route you enter the platform and upload your route to be counted towards the world record.

The organization will be online for 48 hours to support all participants at the time they decide to start participating.

You can even be the ambassador of your country!

Because we want to take this event to as many countries as possible, the first registrant from each country will be appointed the ambassador of that country showing that we can make a difference!

We want to reach every country and for that you will have a support team to support you throughout the process.

CAUSES

Reforesting 

Restoring the world’s forests is “the best climate change solution available” aside from leaving fossil fuels in the ground. Trees create the right conditions for people, animals, and food to survive. They provide a natural carbon filter for the air. They give shade, preventing other living things from being damaged by the sun or heat. Trees also help protect the pathways of streams, rivers, and other sources of water. This helps keep the water clean, prevents flooding or overflowing, and creates an even healthier ecosystem through aquatic wildlife. 

Plastic in the oceans 

Plastic pollution in the world’s oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, impacting more than 600 marine species. Plastic pollution does not only impact sea life, it also carries toxic pollutants into the food chain – a food chain including us humans. According to a study conducted in collaboration with Deloitte, yearly economic costs due to marine plastic pollution are estimated to be between $6-19bn USD. The costs stem from the plastic’s impact on tourism, fisheries and aquaculture, and (governmental) cleanups. 

Reduce waste 

This is a cause that doesn’t have an organization associated. We all are that active agents. Our actions on daily life make the difference. Reducing what we waste is a great way to reduce our impact in the environment. From thinking differently about what we buy, to using re-usable items, to have a composter at home – there are lots of ways to make a real difference. We will give you some tips how to reduce waste and consume in a more responsible way.
