Self Guided Bicycle Tours

Our 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, the High Pyrenees, or mountain biking routes in North Carolina, Guided Tours are available for the 2014 season. read more

    Do you dream about spending a week in Provence?  Our 7-night is designed for riders who want to explore at their leisure without attempting the 1,912 meter “Giant of Provence”, Mont Ventoux.  This tour builds in entire days of rest and relaxation, creating ample space to relax and enjoy.  There is no more romantic a place in France as there is in Provence.   Oceans of sunflowers and acres of lavender alone make it unforgettable.  The food is world renowned, and don’t forget about the wine. read more

  • Northern California Craft Beer Bike Tour


    There are many phenomena associated with cycling – leg shaving, weird suntan lines, saddle-area discomfort, among other things.  But there is one activity that bonds all of cycling regardless of how or what you ride – DRINKING BEER.  And not just any beer, but beer with character – whatever character you desire to emulate.  This bond of these two great things led us to create our craft beer bike tour in Northern California. read more
