Self Guided or Climbing Adventure options let individuals, couples, or groups large or small enjoy one of our expertly-curated tours at their own leisure. Self-guided tour guests chose their own departure dates and are free to modify any of our recommended routes with custom options.
Several of our routes merit the leadership of an experienced guide. For guests wishing to ride the Tour de France route, enjoy pedaling and eating through Provence, or imbibing the best craft beer in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Guided Tours are available for the 2015 season. read more

What Our Guests Say...
“Excellent in all aspects. Bikes were well setup and maintained. Lodging was just wonderful. Routes were well laid out and avoided big roads and big towns. Enough hills to remind us where we were without killing us. Responsiveness of team in California and on the ground was just excellent. We will do more tours with Outfitter Bicycle Tours.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tour – well thought out bike routes, very good hotel accommodations (nice, clean rooms and substantial breakfasts), and excellent choice of breweries and brewery restaurants (including brewery tours when available). It was obvious that a great deal of attention to detail had been given to this tour and customer service and client satisfaction was of utmost importance to OBT. We will definitely take another tour with OBT in the future.”
“I was able to watch Tour de France action when I wanted and ride the beautiful roads and passes of France when I wanted, and the flexibility to do either was what I most appreciated. Conquering Mont Ventoux, Col d Galibier, Col d Semnoz, Col d Serene, Alpe de Huez, riding alongside Andy Schleck and Jens Voigt on their rest day, and 40+ mph descents that went on for miles are just some of the highlights made possible by Gilpin’s careful planning.”
“The team at the Outfitter Bicycle Tours put together an amazing holiday that I’ll never forget. We had great places to stay/eat and we were always in the thick of the action. The tour rides catered for riders of all levels and we somehow managed to visit my favourite team on a tour ride! I’ll be back to do it all again soon.”
“The support was incredible – so nice to have a car on the route for water, and so we did not have to lug gear for weather changes. With all the elevation, this was comforting. Exceptional mechanical support. We did not expect this kind of on-road support!”
“The careful and excellent detailed preplanning, reservations, and auxiliary service were well done and made our trip easy and seamless!”
“We enjoyed so much that it is difficult to describe.”
“We’ve returned home now and I wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful trip. It came off without a hitch and we enjoyed many of the routes you mapped out for us. Happily, after our wives built their confidence, the only day we ended up truncating was the first day, when we rode directly from Le Thor to Fontaine de Vaucluse through Ile sur la Sorgue. We also added Oppede le Vieux on the second day, which is a worthwhile stop. Thanks again for your professionalism and patience with our ever-changing plans.”
“Bruno speaks English very well. He is extremely knowledgeable about food like where to eat and regional dishes and wines, accommodations and the roads. He asks feedback on the places we stayed and the quality of the food. He was very responsive our cycling needs too. When we needed sag help he was there quickly and no complaints.”
“We had an absolutely incredible time! Everything was perfect. The routes, the hotels, and the food was fantastic!…We absolutely had more fun and had a greater experience than we were expecting and our expectations were already very high! So thank you very much! We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will hopefully have the opportunity to work with you again on another tour!”
“The countryside is every bit as lovely as we had expected, the routes offered really pleasant riding with excellent variety. We do love the self-guided style trips (this was our 3rd with your organization), with flexibility to ride at our own pace, to stop whenever and wherever we care to. The only pressure is to arrive at the evening’s destination by cocktail hour!”
“Outfitter Bicycle Tours were wonderful- Jamie Gilpin is an excellent communicator and responds quickly to questions and needs. Bruno Baldini is an excellent tour guide, responsive, on time and a skilled cyclist. We have plans to definitely do another tour. Overall, an A+++ trip full of fantastic memories!“
