The very heart of Chapeau Events philosophy is personal achievement! Whether fundraising for a particular goal; discovering your inner excitement; fulfilling your desire to explore in the saddle; see countries; experience cultures; or simply embarking on an adventure you are completely novice to.
At Chapeau Events, we know what makes the hardened cyclist tick when it comes to the beloved outdoor pursuit. It’s a desire shared by many others; a yearning to jump on that saddle and lose oneself in amazing memories; to visit new places and come home with a real sense of what they’re about; or to sample new cultures and make life time friends.
For the novice cyclists, it’s a decision to set charitable or personal wellbeing targets and become exhilarated as you, not only achieve them, but surpass them. To truly surprise yourself as you exceed your own expectations, whether finishing the distance, conquering the highest hill, or just simply meandering along and taking it all in. In fact, Chapeau Events strives to provide the ultimate beneficial experience for everyone one involved whatever your level.
The company started in 2015 when David Wright came up with the idea, after family and friends convinced him how fantastic the charitable cycle rides, he had previously organised over the last five years had been.
Dave first embarked on this journey as a personal goal to raise awareness and give thanks for the life changing help his wife endured, through organ donation. This quickly turned into an ever increasing passion to cycle to places all over Europe, inviting family and friends to join him. Five years on…It was time to let others share in those experiences.
Chapeau Events is passionate about the benefits that cycling challenges can bring, from fulfilling your personal ambitions, to the health and wellbeing of taking part; or simply through the excitement of a challenge adventure. We want you to have your own unique experience on our events to allow yourself to reach the limits of your expectations. This is why we personally ride every inch of all our routes. We select all the hotels for your comfort and relaxation after long days and we ensure all your meals provide you with the correct sustenance to keep you energised. We even offer you alternative routes on our rides to rubberstamp that unique experience!
All our crew have a passion for outdoor pursuits, travel and adventure, and between us we’ve notched up experience that spans many countries worldwide. That’s not all. In their former lives, our crew have been expert enthusiasts from cycle racers and bike gurus to hardened trekkers and mountain skiers… so, no-one is better placed to create events that appeal to a wide range of interests.
The phenomenal care in putting all the details in place really shows through our extensive planning, research, fact-finding and training…all a sign of our commitment to providing an event where your enjoyment, value for money and safety come first. It’s a telling reason why our customers return to us and it’s no exaggeration to say that our events crew can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your holiday – so we choose them carefully.
