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.
Our Self-Guided tours 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. From leisurely tours through vineyards to aggressive adventures in the high mountains, we can satisfy any cyclist craving.
Several of our routes merit the leadership of experienced guides. For guests wishing to ride the Tour de France route, cross high mountain routes on a point-to-point tour, or imbibing the best craft beer & touring breweries, Guided Tours are available for the 2017 season.

If I wanted an easier day, they h… Read more
“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!”
“WOW! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE!!! Jamie and Joy Gilpin – along with their staff members – created one of the most memorable bike adventures we’ve ever experienced.
