We have communicated with all impacted travelers who were scheduled to travel with us between March 11, 2020 and August 31, 2020. The situation is changing daily, but we remain hopeful that there will be minimal impact on travel after September 1, 2020. We believe that the demand for travel with bounce back quickly, however, Tandem Bicycle tours, Inc. will remain attentive to the possiblity that future tours may be impacted and we will take responsible actions as needed.
When travel does recommence it will not be business as usual, other than for the enjoyment of travel by tandem. We are considering all aspects of recommendations and guidelines provided by CDC, WHO and local health authorities to ensure that our tours are safe and comfortable for you, our guests. We are putting these new policies and procedures in place at the moment and will provide updates as these plans are finalized.
In the meantime, stay safe and well. We look forward to a day in the not-too-distant future when we can enjoy seeing the world by tandem once more and sharing these experiences with you.
