What if your local trails were your new office?

Airbnb comes to mountain biking

Sacred Rides, the "#1 Mountain Bike Tour Company on Earth" as ranked by National Geographic Adventure magazine, is at it again. 

Never content to sit on their rear tire, they've cooked up a crazy new scheme to bring the Airbnb model to mountain bike guiding.

Their new Getaways program gives mountain bikers around the world the tools, training, and support to offer guided 1 and 2-day mountain bike adventures on their local trails.

The program includes:

  • A beautiful, customizable website to list your 1 and 2-day trips on
  • A powerful booking system that can be set up to accept credit cards within minutes
  • A backend operations system to make your operations butter-smooth
  • Marketing manuals, materials, and templates
  • Operations and guide training
  • Lots of other support materials
  • Access to discounted bikes and gear through Sacred Rides' partners
  • Access to a private Facebook community group
  • Regular webinars on every aspect of running a successful business

If accepted into the program, affiliates have exclusive access to a 30-km/20mi radius area around their local trails (affiliates can also guide outside of this area, as long as they don't encroach on someone else's exclusive territory).

More details can be found here. The program is currently in waitlist-only mode so that they can focus on supporting their 20 existing affiliates, but will be accepting new applications in early March.
