For Immediate Release – October 19, 2009
Vancouver, B.C. – According to recent statistics*, more than 51 percent of people in Canada are unmarried. For many, the approaching holiday season is something to dread. For some, it comes down to choosing between a solo frozen turkey TV dinner, watching a rerun of It’s a Wonderful Life or listening to Aunt Debbie ask (again) why you aren’t married yet.
For many of the growing population that are not married, getting out of town to do something exciting and adventurous is a great alternative to tinfoil dinners or Aunt Debbie. Recognizing that not everyone looks forward to staying home during the holiday season, BikeHike Adventures offers a range of trips throughout December to meet the needs of this growing group. An adventure trip can take you out of the ho ho ho humdrums and immerse you in activity, culture and friendship. Plus, at BikeHike there is no single supplement.
Many of BikeHike’s excursions are developed with the single adventure traveller in mind. Says BikeHike Founder Trish Sare, “We understand the single traveller and have made sure that our trips create a memorable experience for everyone involved. On our trips, people seem to bond really quickly. The only way someone will feel ‘alone’ with us is if he or she wants to keep to themselves.” She adds: “Quite often, our single traveller has the best experience. They generally make more friends both in our group and by connecting with the people in the towns and villages we visit. We’ve even had a few romances blossom from people meeting on a BikeHike tour.”
Some of the upcoming holiday season BikeHike trips that Sare recommends for singles are:
- Ecuador, Andes to Amazon http://www.bikehike.com/ecuador/ecuador_trip01.html
- Guatemala, Mundo Maya Multi-sport http://www.bikehike.com/guatemala/guatemala_trip01.html
- Panama, Rumble in the Jungle http://www.bikehike.com/panama/panama_trip01.html
BikeHike doesn’t charge single supplements and groups are matched with the overall dynamic and the travellers’ fitness levels in mind. Not all BikeHike Adventure trips are hard core adrenalin-filled, and singles looking for a less physically demanding trip can find one that matches their abilities.
