Instabike is a company specialized in bicycle tourism that offers tours to visit Senegal.

An initiative of INSTABIKE

Overview of the project

As people become more and more aware of environmental issues, rethinking our habits is at the heart of many problems. The bicycle, a mode of travel that is both economical and ecological, is one of the solutions to these issues and promotes the implementation of a more responsible tourism.

InstaBike is an agency specialized in sustainable tourism that allows you to visit a place or a city by bike, alone, accompanied, with your family or even in a group. InstaBike offers several formats of cycling experiences according to the expectations of its clients. InstaBike’s mission is to make bicycle tourism easier, safer and more enjoyable for all levels of riders. Cycling is a great way to explore a city, see the sights, meet new people and connect with nature.

These innovative concepts are offered in Dakar but also in other French-speaking African cities, notably in Togo and Mali (currently being launched).

Objective

The project aims to develop bicycle tourism in French-speaking African capitals and promote the use of bicycles as an ecological means of travel.
