A day in the life
A typical day on one of our bicycle tours goes something like this:
The group wakes up to the smell of hot coffee and breakfast. As the guides dole out the goodies, the group packs up and gets ready for a day of riding. We use the buddy system so no one rides alone. The group will stop periodically at scenic points, for water and snack breaks, and of course for lunch (my personal favorite part of the day…except for maybe dinner!) A bit more riding after lunch takes the group to our accomodations. If we are camping you can be sure that the area is beautiful. Most days we will set up our things and have an activity such as a hike around the lake, sunset viewing, or whatever the area offers. Dinner from the pre-selected meals or one of our famous pasta or taco nights (not only for tuesdays) concludes the day with campfire stories about the days’ ride.
What if I don’t have camping experience?
Then this is the adventure for you! Our guides are expert campers and will be there to teach and help you learn the ropes. A bonus of going with us is that we have all the tips and tricks to make camping fun and COMFORTABLE! We also facilitate and gear rentals and provide a full gear list for all riders. Trust me, it is the best way to truly experience a bike adventure and see the places we have worked so hard to ride to.
How hard is the riding?
Our tours vary in difficulty and length; this is in the description of each ride. If you aren’t sure, reach out and send us a note! We can help you figure out what tour is right for you. Don’t worry, we also have a support vehicle at all times that can give you a lift and shorten the day if need be.
The part that we worry about so you don’t have to. We plan the route, the stops, the meals, the accommodation, carry the luggage and provide support the whole way. The most intimidating parts of a bicycle tour are all taken care of so you can go out and do what you love, ride in some of the most beautiful places in the world. When you tour with us, you don’t have to worry about a thing.
