Join our team as a Bike Delegate and ride for Free

Today is a big day, because it means a new stage in the development of Traildeer, by recruiting new blood into the team in the form of bike delegates. We hope that this will have a positive impact on the future of our trips, in that they will become more flexible in terms of dates and we will gradually expand the types of trips to other categories like eBike, XC and maybe road trips down the line.

But before that, a bit of backstory. As you may know, with Traildeer we try to create unforgettable bike trips in exotic as well as local destinations, where we take care of everything – from accommodation, through a complete itinerary for each day, local guides leading the group on the trails, shuttling or lifts, to small details such as recommendations where they have the best drinks or food, where to buy groceries, or where to take a bath.

Compared to the usual bike trips you can find online these days, we have taken our service to the next level by having one of our delegates accompany the entire group during the trip, both in the saddle and out of it. He makes sure that the trip rolls on smoothly and that the whole group is pampered properly, before the ride, on the trails, as well as after a full day of riding. Since most of the time on each trip we ride multiple locations, we also often change guides/vans or accommodation, and therefore our delegate ensures that the quality of the delivered services corresponds to the expectations of the participants during the entire trip.

And since on most of these trips new people meet for the first time, thanks to the delegate we can ensure that the group bonds quickly and that there is always a good mood. In addition, the delegate takes care of all possible matters from organization, time schedule, communication with local guides or drivers, or help with accommodation equipment, etc. So the participant himself really only has to show up with their bike and enjoy the holiday.

We are therefore looking for bike “delegates” to join the team who would accompany our customers on the trips and ensure high quality and satisfaction of each participant. Since no one has unlimited free time to be on each ride, we want to cover the whole year and ideally different types of biking across multiple people, at least one per each category – trail, ebike, xc, road or someone who does more than one.
