About the tour: to explore the wildlife

The Ecotecn Belarus  staff rode 104 kilometers during two days.

"The clients voiced their wishes by the phone:  they did not want typical tourist attractions like Mir or Nesvizh, where they have been already so many times for work. They would rather visit someplace that combines wildlife and cultural sites", – says Tatiana Vitkovskaia the director and guide of Biketours ZAO.

Employees won the support of the director of "TDF Ecotech," and together they finalized on of the routes provided by Biketours ZAO. So about a dozen people, accompanied by guides Tatiana and John, passed through Ivacevichy - Ruzhany - Kosava - Ivacevichy.

Biketours ZAO: The group members were strong and cycled fast

"We chosen the route in a such way that the participants would not be too tired during the ride, but it turned out that it was not necessary. The group was strong enough. They rode briskly and almost no one withdrew f.

Overall impression of the group and the organization – a very positive, interesting and friendly group. Simple, undemanding, and it was great to work with them.

After talking with other potential customers, perhaps, I can say: cycling trip was really interesting for that group. Their Austrian partners are doing such a "trip" in the Alps each year. And so they as well decided to try it, even though we do not have the Alps", –  says Tatiana Vitkovskaia.

Biketours ZAO provided high quality bikes for the participants, including one fat bike.  

"Impressions from this fat  tire bike are only positive. Despite its cumbersome appearance the bike was easy to operate, fast and most importantly – very suitable for sandy roads", – conveys the impressions administrative assistant Elena Reyt.

TDF Ecotech: We have not had the experience of long bike tours

"Although we had no experience of long tours on bikes, the route was not very stressful, the rate was stable and allowed to take photos and enjoy nature, we had a chance to take a stroll in the ancient castles and monuments of the XIX century, – says executive assistant Elena on behalf of colleagues.

– The route goes through the forest trails, away from the busy roads. On the way there were beautiful fields, small villages and deserted hamlets.
