PARIS, June 8 ― Fashion-forward couples who also happen to be avid cyclists may be interested in a new luxury vacation package that involves exploring the streets of the chicest destinations in the world on an electric bike.
Think celebrity cycling couple Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts, urban cyclists who make biking look good.
Created by the same folks who put together around-the-world trips to all 962 UNESCO World Heritage sites and a culinary odyssey to triple Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, the latest package from VeryFirstTo involves hitting the fashion capitals of the world like Paris, New York, Milan and London on a pair of luxury e-bikes.
Launched in collaboration with e-bike specialists A2B, the month-long trip will take participants to the hottest restaurants, clubs and galleries in 12 cities that were deemed the most fashionable by 4,000 voters.
In London, guests will put up their feet at the Rosewood Hotel, dine at Le Gavroche, and have a nightcap at the Connaught Bar.
In Paris, guests will stay at the Four Seasons George V and dine at Le Meurice and Taillevent.
And in New York, reservations will be made at the Loews Regency, Le Bernardin and Per Se restaurants, and tickets purchased for the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In addition to hotel and flight costs and guided tours in each city, guests will also be able to keep the bikes at the end of the tour.
The German-made Obree and Orsted recharge through regenerative pedaling and breaking and can reach speeds of up to 130 kilometres/an hour (80 miles/an hour).
The package costs US$134,000 (RM 430, 000). ― AFP-Relaxnews
