CCNS Head Coach Aidan Charles is one of the US’s pre-eminent endurance sports coaches and has been supporting, leading and inspiring athletes to success for years. Whether an athlete is training for a personal record at a Gran Fondo or gunning for a roster spot in the UCI World Tour, CCNS insists that true coaching focuses on the whole athlete; from goal-setting to diet, tactics, daily lifestyle choices, and of course, the training plan.

Basso Bikes

Basso represents an authentic Italian brand. Unlike the vast majority of frames that are made in large factories in Asia, Basso frames are hand-made at the Basso Factory in Bassano del Grappa in Italy. Attention to detail and ultimate quality are trademarks of the Basso brand - which aligns the brand very nicely with Thomson’s very own core values. The end result is a beautifully built bike with phenomenal handling that has totally impressed all of our ride leaders!

Qhubeka

Qhubeka is a non-profit organisation that uses bicycles to connect people to schools, clinics and jobs in Africa. The name means “to progress”, “to move forward”, because bicycles help people to travel faster and further, and to carry more. This means they can get where they need to go and do things that are difficult without transport, like fetching supplies, travelling to school or work, visiting a clinic, or providing emergency help after a disaster. A bicycle is a tool that helps people move forward.

Thomson Bike Tours are proud to collaborate with Qhubeka. For every cycling trip booked, we have pledged to donate $25 to Qhubeka.
