Cycling has become one of the most popular hobbies of the urban community in Indonesia. Many cycling clubs have been established as some kind of forums for cycling enthusiasts. Moreover, the majority of the clubs frequently hold long-distance touring events.
While one can enjoy the sport alone, many cycling clubs organize long-distance bicycle touring in groups. One of the ways to hold a touring event is using a car to go to the destination city and switching to a bicycle to tour the city once arrived.
TRAC is aware of the trend, and it tries to support this hobby by offering the Bike by Bus deal,which will facilitate the activities of cycling enthusiasts. In addition, this deal also urges cyclists to reduce the use of private vehicles to minimize pollution.
If the club members go by bus, the number of cars used to go on the tour will be significantly reduced. This is good for the environment as pollution from car emissions can be minimized.
TRAC’s Bike by Bus service will enable both the bikes and their owners to go together in a large group. The bikes will be stored safely within the bus, which can hold many of them.
There are two types of buses that can be used with regard to this deal, namely medium and big buses. All buses used are of the premium type, and their capacities can be adjusted to the number of cyclists. A medium bus can accommodate up to 21 road bikes and 25 passengers. The capacity of a big bus is about twice as big as the capacity of a medium bus, as it can accommodate up to 48 bikes and 59 passengers.
Bike owners don’t need to worry about the safety of their bikes when they are being hauled into the bus, as the loading and unloading processes are done by an experienced bus crew. Besides, a safety bracket and sling are provided to ensure that the bikes won’t be swaying, colliding, or even falling.
If you are a cyclist who is planning to go on a bicycle touring in groups, make sure to visit TRAC’s website and take advantage of the Bike by Bus deal.
