Chris EllisonView Other Tour Managers
Chris believes tours should be mostly about enjoying yourself and having fun experiencing the local culture, scenery and people - rather than ticking off countries or getting the miles in. He says, 'I try to give a choice of long or short rides with rest days as well on most of my tours.' He enjoys reading and watching films (he is a bit of a film buff) and, in the past, the odd scuba dive and horse ride.
Haute Provence is his favorite area in Europe and Chris cheerfully admits to speaking bad French with a Provencal accent. Chris is also fond of the area roamed by Ned Kelly in the Highlands of Victoria and Trang Province in Southern Thailand where he has Thai friends in the large local cycling club. On most tours, he can be found looking after the people at the tail-end of the ride. 'After a long hot day, wherever you are in the world,' he says, 'happiness is enjoying a good meal with new friends in a local restaurant, as the stars come out in a velvet night.'
