The Travel Bikers Community – comprising travel professionals and tour leaders of a few travel companies – will be launching a city bike tour of Old Jakarta for corporate groups.
The tour will bring travellers around places of interest in the Old Jakarta district such as the Jakarta History Museum, National Archives Building, Petak Sembilan Chinese Temple, the Candra Naya building, and Sunda Kelapa Harbour. Each group will have a guide, and a maximum of 15 participants.
Jakarta History Museum will be one of the stops on the bike tour
Most importantly, the programme can be tailor-made to suit the needs of corporate groups, such as incorporating an amazing race or a photography competition.
Eddy Efendy, director of Synergy Production Travel and Events, said that the idea stemmed from the community, where members pointed out that Jakarta had a lack of city bike tours and relevant activities.
Hence, the idea to promote the city was conceived, where the travel professionals put their heads together and came up to create the bike tour, where at every stop there would be an activity to complete or a story to tell.
The Travel Bikers Community are currently in the midst of finalising the details, and expects to go live next month. Initially, the tour will be made available at these companies: First Orion Holidays, Avia Tour & Travel, Synergy Production Travel & Events, Wisman Travel and Fun Holiday.
In the future, the community hopes to expand tours – which can last from one to five days – to Bogor and Bandung.
