Our guided and self guided bike tours

Our Bike Tours

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to bicycle vacations—that’s why we offer something for everyone. Whether you seek a climbing adventure that takes you up challenging peaks or a relaxed ride through idyllic landscapes, we have a cycling tour for you.

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...

“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.”

    Ten Things You Could Experience Staying at a Team Hotel

    Since my first visit to Le Tour de France in 2000, I have become a passionate follower with many memorable encounters over the years. After my first three visits with organized groups including two with Outfitter Bicycle Tours, I embarked on independent journeys in search of the uncommon and/or situations where no tour operator would go. In the midst of those journeys I have been fortunate to experience the race staying at the same hotels as teams, race officials, media, caravan crews, retired pros, and technical staff. read more

    Pedaling Through Burgundy

    As OBT grows and we expand into new destinations, we are always eager to hear feedback from our early guests. Burgundy was our big addition in 2014. Below is the feedback we received from Bill & Terry Krivan, some of our “repeat offenders”. This Burgundy tour was their third tour with OBT, and they always make the most of their touring experience. (Note the cooking class they added!) Thank you Bill & Terry! read more

    Living in the Hills of Tuscany

    Tuscany is one of our more popular destinations.
