Local sustainable development and Plateau Cycling goals
We, the Plateau Cycling team, are inspired by the bicycle and its ability to generate respect to nature and to different people’s approach. We think and act in a way to reduce the impact of our modern city life to nature. Committed to protect environment and the biological diverse we focus on our knowledge how that wonderful nature works. We learn by watching and contemplating.
We are firmly engaged in campaigns which aim wildlife protection and nature conservation.
Our little missions are to collect plastic waste, left by our groups and sometimes those, which we found on the ground, and to minimize the vehicle access to lonely tourist sites and nature landmarks. When we drive a car we never go directly to the desired place, but use car parks which are 1-2 km. away and reach the sites of interest by foot or on bicycle.
Every pedal push is a step ahead on the road of nature conservation. We believe our activities take care of the impact to the environment, to people’s health and occur in a manner to benefit the local communities and nature conservation practices.
Every single bike is an efficient way of transport which by environmentally friendly generated power provides a wellbeing and restores the positive thoughts in our mind. Regardless of if you are riding purely for pleasure or for a specific purpose, you will arrive at your destination feeling relaxed, energized and happier about the world and yourself.
We include many unknown for the tourist industry settlements and sites in distant or minority areas in our routes and invite our clients to get familiar with locals and to spend some time and money there. We sustain the cultural diversity and promote the different lifestyles as self-choice of the local communities and individuals.
Staying in touch with locals along the green-ways of our tours we stimulate their small trade and farms while enjoying the real taste of the fruits and vegetables, fish or the dairy products. We also rely on quality bikes made by local Bulgarian company “Drag” and cooperate with a lot of small Bulgarian and Romanian businesses in our everyday work.
We provide the right tool and place you at the heart of your next stage of eco-friendly life. Admire nature in all its forms riding amidst the habitats of many living creatures, enjoy the bird's songs and get connected to that peaceful state of mind being a responsible traveler.
Cycling can help you live longer and better
Riding a bike offers many health benefits. Here are just a few:
- increased cardiovascular fitness
- increased strength
- increased balance and flexibility
- increased endurance and stamina
- increased calories burned
So riding a bike works for your better health, peace of mind, increased confidence and self-reliance, even for fatter bank account. It can be done by people of all ages, from childhood up even through the adult years when achy joints don't allow for more stressful exercise like jogging.
Bicycle helps us to feel the life of the whole community
Being out on your bike is good for the people around you as well. You are able to reach places you want to go and yet put one less car on the road.
You don’t bring with you the noise that a car generates and are actually able to interaction with people as you move. From my bike I can wave to a neighbor, say hi to a kid, smell someone’s dinner cooking and be a warm and friendly human presence on the streets.
Also, not insignificant: operating a bicycling does not harm the environment. There is no polluting exhaust released, no oil or gas consumed. And the energy and materials used to manufacture one automobile could be used for the production of hundred bikes.
So for all these reasons, get out there on your bike today. Even if you don’t save the world in the process, you’ll still have fun trying!
