Clare Harden

Tour Operations Ninja & Manager of Madness

Clare has taken on the Tour Operations role from John. Growing up near Rotorua Clare has always been a bike lover, ripping laps round the Whakarewarewa forest. Before moving to the South Island Clare travelled extensively naming Nepal as one of her favourite destinations. Nowadays snowboarding, mountain biking and volunteering in the community also high on the agenda whilst supporting her two sons in their sporting pursuits.  Clare will be out and about whenever possible otherwise she can be found juggling just about everything behind the scenes! 



When we say small, we mean up to 12 people only.  That lets us focus on you and your unique holiday, and not on a big unwieldy group of cyclists.

Expert Leaders

All our cycle tours are led by two of our Escape Adventures leaders.  We pride ourselves on the calibre and resourcefulness of these great people who you will be spending your holiday with.

Keeping It Really Local

We know that our most precious memories are of real people. We’ve been going to the same villages for many years. You’ll meet locals on their terms, and make friends that will seem like family when you leave.

Making a Difference

By supporting local accommodations, restaurants and small businesses we make a direct and real contribution to the economies of the areas we visit.
