From the 1st of January 2022, tour guests over the age of 18 are required to provide proof of a current and valid COVID-19 vaccination, with the final dose administered more than two weeks prior to departure or provide documentation of a negative covid test taken within 3 days of the trip start date if RT-PCR or within one day of trip start for Antigen tests.
Additional vaccination requirements may vary from country to country. It is the duty of travelers to check any requirements which need to be fulfilled before travel, which includes transit destinations, on the destination country?s government websites.What are the exemptions to the vaccination requirements?

Pedalers believes that the wearing of face masks and observing social distancing aids in the reduction of the spread of Covid19.
Wearing facemasks is suggested during the following tour activities:
• While riding in any support vehicle or public transportation used during the tour
• During group meetings, orientation, hotel check-in, etc
• Before dinner is served and while sitting around chatting after you have finished eating
Guests are asked to maintain social distancing:
• At rest stops
• At group meetings
• While in public transportation hubs awaiting departure
Please note that in some destinations local rules may impose additional conditions, such as, in Madagascar masks must be worn at all times including while cycling, in Thailand your temperature will be checked when entering any store or restaurant, etc. Your guide team will update you during orientation of any changes or added local restrictions.Single Traveler Policy
As a health precaution due to the current global situation with Covid19, Pedalers will not pair up single travelers to share a room or tent for the foreseeable future. Guests traveling by themselves will be required to book a Single Room and will be liable for the Single Supplement Fee. Single travelers joining with a friend for the tour may share a twin bedded room, but need to signup together on a single booking (they can pay separately).Must Bring Personal Equipment
Pedalers has always asked guests to bring their own helmets for cycling tours, as we feel they can not be adequately cleaned between uses. This policy is now mandatory and we also require guests to bring their own cycling waterbottles to use during the tours. Guests without either of these can purchase those items once they reach most of our destinations, but we suggest looking at home first so as to have a bigger and better selection to choose from. Use of helmets IS required on all cycling tours or during the cycling portion of multi-sport tours.
Guests also need to bring their own facemask to wear. We suggest cloth ones that can be washed and reused, rather than a box of disposable masks.Smaller Groups
To allow adequate social distancing in our support vans during transfers or when people would like to break from cycling, we now limit all scheduled departures to 8 guests maximum. Parties booking a private date can request a larger group allowance.
