Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 6 May 2009

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has extended its partnership with German automaker BMW to include a complimentary hotel bicycle service featuring BMW Cruise Bikes.

 Fairmont hotels across Canada will introduce these state-of-the-art bikes as the newest benefit for guests, granting active and adventurous travelers the opportunity to explore the vibrant cities and stunning landscapes of Fairmont’s distinctive locales.

 In addition to offering a selection of BMW Cruise Bikes, each hotel will also boast a variety of child-sized BMW bikes, allowing families to enjoy the great outdoors together.

The perfect companion for both busy urban streets and scenic trails, the BMW Cruise Bike promises a smooth ride on any surface, thanks to a distinctive design and a Suntour suspension system. A striking frame, achieved through hydro-forming manufacturing, an advanced process using high-pressure water to allow the walls of the tube to expand inside a mold and free the aluminum of any shape restrictions, complements other original features including an integrated brake routing system that enables riders to stop on a dime.

“BMW’s stylish Cruise Bikes will allow our guests even greater access to experience the destination and reinforce Fairmont’s reputation of providing guests with thoughtful services that make their travels more convenient, comfortable and memorable,” said Brian Richardson, Fairmont’s Vice President, Brand Marketing & Communications.

With a diverse collection of iconic hotels and picturesque resorts throughout Canada, guests will have no trouble putting the bicycles to use in exploring the sundry sights and landscapes of Fairmont’s unrivalled destinations.

 The Fairmont Chateau Whistler offers unsurpassed biking trails, from paved paths to thrilling mountain descents, ideal for the athletic traveler, and Quebec’s Fairmont Le Château Montebello is every nature-lover’s dream getaway, with bike pathways through woods where riders are certain to spot local wildlife. For guests hoping to see some city sights, Fairmont Château Laurier is the perfect starting point before biking past Canada’s Parliament Buildings, or the area’s historic ByWard Market, where riders will find quaint cafes, boutiques and more.

“We are very pleased to offer Fairmont customers this unique experience,” said Tracy Bulmer, Accessories and Lifestyle Product Manager, BMW Group Canada. “The bike program will provide guests with an adventurous way to explore their surroundings while getting the ‘BMW Experience’ on a Cruise Bike.”

As part of the new bicycle initiative, Fairmont is offering FPC members priority access when reserving the bikes. Free to join, Fairmont President’s Club provides guests with special benefits and privileges.
