I love cycling and healthy food!
What is your name?
Phil from Tourganics
What’s the best idea you’ve had on your bike?
Where to start? I find being on a bike one of the best places to relax and think. Tourganics has got to be up there though, and an example of how an idea on a bike can become a reality.
Tell us about what your business does?
Tourganics organises cycling tours that include visits to organic farms and food and drink producers . We have arranged leisurely routes (including a pub lunch!) for mixed ability groups staying mainly on quiet country roads or cycle tracks and we’re working in partnership with organic farmers who will show us around their farms or small holdings. A reasonable level of fitness is needed and lycra is not necessary.
Why do you do this?
I love cycling and healthy food! Tourganics is about connecting people to each other, to where our food comes from, and to the beautiful countryside.
How long has this business been running for?
This the first year and tours will start in August.
What bit of advice would you give to your younger self?
Get on with it!
