"Thank you for leading our team of 52 riders over 250 miles through four states from Boston to New York. It was a great opportunity for us to bring the Virgin family together on such an epic adventure. Your support team were all highly competent, friendly and accommodating. Leading a group of this size can never be easy, but your team accomplished it with ease, making the whole experience truly wonderful. From feedback already received from the group, I can tell that it has had a positive life-changing impact to many of those who participated. Thank you once again and we look forward to partnering with Great Freedom Adventures again in the near future."

“My sales team and I enjoyed a wonderful half-day experience with Great Freedom Adventures as we biked approximately 18 miles on the MA North Shore. Every detail was professionally handled by the GFA team including picking us up at our office, providing lunch, fitting bikes and educating us on the local lore. Besides the beautiful scenery, our leaders somehow coordinated wildlife sightings of numerous deer and wild turkeys! Dinner and transportation back to the office completed an outstanding event that we thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend Great Freedom Adventures’ events to anyone looking for an affordable, healthy, and unique team-building activity.” John Salamone

Improve Employee Wellness, Performance and Morale
Great Freedom Adventures’ outings have the advantage of combining the significant physical and mental health benefits of exercise with the similar boost to health that results from time spent in nature. Moderate aerobic exercise can improve important brain circuit connectivity and increase performance of cognitive tasks. Time spent in nature has been shown to improve disposition, increase mental clarity and attention, and reduce recovery time from illness. Recent research has shown that the largest positive health changes occurred when people exercised in the outdoors. Thus, active, outdoor team building activities and events have the greatest potential to significantly improve performance in the workplace.
Comprehensive Planning and Support for your Corporate Outing
Great Freedom Adventures handles all details of the corporate outing including event planning, itinerary, travel to and from the event, bikes, gear, guides, support throughout the outing and arrangements for meals and special activities as desired. This attention to all details means that company principals are free to focus on meeting or work agendas.
