The Pidgin Rally is an adventure ride for the curious traveler.
YOU! Or anyone that can ride a bike about 25-35 miles a day for 10 days straight. If you can’t, and still want to go on the trip – drop us a line and we’ll see if we can accommodate.
The Rally may change locations from year to year – but will typically start and finish in Shanghai, China.
You can see the dates for the upcoming rally on our REGISTRATION page.
We understand that traveling internationally can be a hassle to arrange, and make you nervous if you’re going to a country like China – and can’t speak the language.
We think it’s hard too – that’s why we are doing all the heavy lifting for you so you can have the vacation you want…nay…NEED! Because it’s the vacation that gives you crazy stories and life-long memories to pass down through the generations. After it’s all said and done, you want to be unique. And we’re here to give you that vacation!
Chris Bayer wants to live in a world where restaurants have Sichuan peppercorn next to the salt and pepper shakers, everyone can experience swimming in the ocean while it rains, and a man can add Bellini to any beer on a hot afternoon without ridicule.
When he’s not busy in sales or providing financial advice to clients, friends and family you can find him biking around Calgary listening to classic Motown.
His latest project -The Pidgin Rally- hits Shanghai every September and allows him to visit his Alma Mater every year. He wants you to discover what an amazing country China is and maybe learn a little bit about yourself in the process.

Here’s the deal. The Pidgin Rally is a way of breaking down personal fears of the unknown and experiencing an adventure. It’s leaving behind the mundane for a bit and stepping outside of the comfort zone. that’s what Chris believes in.
