Loops Tours wants to support positive urban development and assist in the creation of life-sized and revitalized cities. We do this through our cargo bike experiences, which display positive examples of development so that we can share great ideas on how people can live together into and beyond the 21st century. Our belief is that cargo bikes are a key ingredient for making cities car-free and therefore, more liveable. The best way to convince world citizens and politicians that cycling infrastructure is a great investment, is to let them experience the joy, freedom and social aspect of biking for themselves. We endeavor to make our guests ambassadors for cycling infrastructure in their own communities and aim to achieve this by providing a memorable and fun activity on our cargo e-bikes.
Additionally, we realize that many travelers these days are not really interested in the historical details of a city’s past but are looking for something beyond the typical tourist experience. We believe that the interesting stories can be presented entertainingly but should also be told in a way that is thought-provoking and prompts reflection. Everyone travels to gain a new perspective, a new angle and a new reflection on their own position (maybe even change their behavior).
We know that this is a fairly ambitious goal but demonstrating positive examples and interesting scientific facts all within an entertaining tour has the potential to inspire even one person to make a small change in their life. These could be things like deciding to take the kids to school by bike rather than by car, spending more time with family and friends, joining an organization with a positive social cause or even voting for a politician (please vote!) that supports creating green urban planning. There are many examples of positive urban development and they can be found not only in cities like Copenhagen but almost everywhere. It is our job to find these examples, wrap them neatly into an entertaining tour and excite our guests to support life-sized cities.
It goes without saying that we want to contribute to the communities we work within and the environment as well. We aim to do this by paying fair wages to our guides, cooperating and partnering with social businesses that share our values and reducing our footprint by removing single-use items from our equipment and tours. Our impact on the planet and on individuals should always be an important variable in every decision we make as an organization and ourselves.
