  6. 6. What should I know about “The Peloton”? “ The Peloton” is the calling name for the road bike cycling community of Beijing. The word itself means “a large bunch of cyclists”. We are amateur cyclists, both competitive and leisure, and we organize road bike training, cycling expeditions and cycling competitions. Our number 1 aim is:   to develop a cycling lifestyle community in Beijing that incorporates Chinese and foreigners, riders of all ages, gender, nationality and levels.
  7. 7. We use English, Chinese and French as our main ways to communicate but on a bike no words are needed…! Our aim is to help them to bike the roads and mountains of Beijing in a safe, exciting and sportive way. We include and welcome male and female road bikers. We welcome hardcore competitors and leisurely weekend warriors. We divided ourselves into cycling groups based on bike speed and training objectives.Group rides vary from 50 to 150km. The length of the cycling tours all depends on the time of year, the make-up of the groups and the circumstances. We welcome tri- or duathletes as well as MTB’ers who prefer to ride on tarmac. For the hardcore segment of either discipline, we suggest you link up with our brethren at  Tri-Beijing  and  the MOB .
  8. 8. Community & Content Whether road bike cycling, mountain biking, triathlon or any other hobby, our goal is to serve as your platform in China to keep abreast of local and national competitions, community events, festivals and more. Our website hopes to become a treasure chest of collective wisdoms, insights and cycling advice. Obviously, we will pay attention to training advice, race advice, recovery and medical advice and sports journalism. Everyone is invited to participate and post articles or comments on the site. We invite media in the form of pictures, videos and so on to be posted as well. We are a product of collective input and passion.
  9. 9. Competition In collaboration with established race and festival organizers like TREK, Windspeed, Shimano and others, we aim to invigorate the competitions attendance rate and intensity. We ourselves have plans to add some interesting and challenging cycling events this year! Tourism in Northern Asia China and Mongolia are gorgeous, remote and utterly captivating places to visit. Cycling is above all a fantastic way to cover and experience the hinterlands of these 2 countries.  Since 2008 we have partnered up with the Mongolian National Cycling Federation and have been conducting MTB expeditions in the land of Ghenghis Khan!   Join us this year on our trips around Beijing and China and experience genuine amateur cycling tourism with us!
  10. 10. With our years of experience on the roads and hills of Beijing, the folks at  The Peloton   have a wealth of day trips for road bike and MTB cycling tours. What makes us different to other bike tour operators in Beijing you may ask? Well, as the leaders of the local road bike and MTB community, we are uniquely placed to offer: Road Bike Trips For Cyclists, By Cyclists and From Cyclists!
  11. 11. We enjoy sharing these remote and scenic bike tours with foreign visitors to Beijing. Our cycling tours of Beijing cover the remote areas around the Great Wall. We go to places no regular tourist ever gets to see. Our road bike trips around Beijing take you past the Ming Tombs, rural villages from a forgotten era and a fabulous wealth of Buddhist and Taoist temples and pagodas. Mostly, our road bike cycling trips take you across (and over) the most splendid of Beijing’s mountain scenery. Because that is what true cyclists want: a challenge and a reward! For more information, contact us directly so that we can jointly decide on a tour of your liking!  We can organize day trips, weekend or multi-day tours.
