Back in June 2016, when we launched the Exploro bike, we launched our XPDTN3 (eXPeDiTioN) club at the same time. With XPDTN3 we went on 3 day bike adventures and told you our stories and showed you the most amazing scenery around the world. XPDTN3 bike trips are perfectly suited for riding with the Exploro.
We shared our travel stories from Japan, Utah (US), South Africa, Oman, and many more amazing places. After a couple of months we started getting emails from you: ‘ can I book such a trip with 3T?’. And the answer was always: no I am sorry, we are not able to offer you these trips as a ‘package’. In order to offer travel destinations, special licenses are required.
And then I met Willy Mulonia: in 2003 he founded the bike travel agency PA Cyclism. Willy is a true bike explorer: one of his most important accomplishments is his ride of 28.640km from Patagonia all the way up to Prudhoe Bay in Alaska. Willy is a great and entertaining guy. His bike travel agency has since the launch focused on offering trips off the beaten path. I couldnt imagine a better partner to launch 3T trips based on our XPDTN3 stories.
Today we proudly launch the first trips at 3Travel. With groups of maximum 10 riders you will explore absolutely awesome routes under the guidance of 2 professional bike tour guides. Everything is taken care of: hotel, food, routes. You just need to show up with your bike and good mood: hassle free adventure travel. Bookings are open, and limited availability, so BE FIRST!
