Get Off The Beaten Track With Chainstay

2nd July 2013
In South Africa, there are a myriad of trails, and no two are alike, making the experience of trying out different routes not only irresistible, but vital to the livelihood of any adrenaline-hungry MTB junkie. CHAINSTAY is a network of MTB destinations that add value to the MTB experience, not only for the enthusiast, but also for the enthusiastic supporters who travel with them. With value-added services for the mountain bikers and their travelling parties, it is set to revolutionise the overall experience of this ‘new wave’ in adventure tourism.

Mountain bikers do not have exorbitant demands or wayward needs, but by checking off a few simple necessities, getting your establishment accredited by Chainstay is easy. Secure storage for bikes, high pressure bike cleaning or a pump for inflating tires, information about local trails or on-site energy/sports supplements geared to mountain biking are a few examples of how easy it is to ensure not only bookings, but return visits. As Chainstay evolves, services will be added in consultation with accredited destinations.

Chainstay has partnered with African Eagle, one of South Africa’s premier full-service tour management operators in order to provide end-to-end management services. Chainstay will offer a marketing platform backed by a well established and reputable tour operator using their tried and tested booking portal for bookings at Chainstay accredited accommodation destinations.

This platform will also provide additional marketing opportunities and exposure of Chainstay accredited destinations, both locally and internationally. Existing resorts and accommodation destinations that offer the best of South African coastal, inland, mountain and forest experiences are already being incorporated into the Chainstay network.

Chainstay will have a strong social media presence. Mountain bikers are extremely ‘communityoriented’ and the opportunity of sharing experiences, uploading photos, showcasing new trails and simply ‘in the moment’ sharing will be facilitated even via smart phone uploading. In the past, a mountain biker’s adventure couldn’t start without a helmet, but with Chainstay, the experience of freedom and limitless opportunity starts when the portal is opened to Biking specific services, attractions, specials, benefits. New trails will be showcased as well as Chainstay accredited destinations.
