Create your Dream Bike Vacation — Your own road to the world!
In addition to our scheduled cycling tours, we also design bike trips based on your group’s requirements and biking tastes. More miles? Less hills? Wheeling and wine? How about Burma? Or cycling the Portuguese coast? We’ve traveled and toured by bike in over 17 foreign countries and love, nothing more, than sharing some of our other favorite adventures with your own personal twist.
Our custom bicycling tours generally fall into the following categories (of course we’re always open to other ideas):
Passport and Panniers. You are a true touring cyclist who prefers the freedom and adventure of pedaling with your panniers, if only you had the time to plan or a partner for the ride. This can be arranged! These can be unguided, independent cycling tours or if you can’t find anyone with the same vacation schedule as you, we’d be happy to pair you with one of our guides (we really like these tours). By their very nature, these generally are much less expensive tours.
Budget Trips are Better. You love to bike and travel so much that you barely have time to work. You and your friends are looking for a budget bike trip to far-away roads. Our custom budget trips generally involve staying in more local accommodations: charming pensions, home-stays, gites d’ etape and backpacker lodges. Generally this means a bunk bed and shared bathroom facilities. Let’s face it, after a day of sunshine in the saddle, who really cares whether you have a private palace? When we travel on our exploratory trips, these are our preferred sleepovers where we often form long lasting friendships with other travelers and locals alike.
The Lap of Luxury. You like to ride strong or ride slow but, at the end of every day, you like to strip off your spandex and luxuriate in a terry robe eating truffles! Tell us your budget and we’ll tailor a tour for you.
Location, Location. Some of us like bike journeys to traverse entire countries, while others would like nothing more than one ideal location far away from home; endless miles of loop rides and a city to savor slowly. Center-based cycling trips are all the rage, accommodating non-cycling partners, eliminating the need to pack and move daily and offering a multitude of different activities. We have several favorite places for this type of sojourn – Lake Annecy, Lake Geneva, Tarifa, Spain, Grenoble, France and, of course, just about anywhere in Italy.
Cycling Divas. We have to admit, women are generally more adventurous and active than men when it comes to vacations. Get your girlfriends together, leave the kids with your wonderful spouse and truly get away from it all (if only for a week). We’ll keep you active and fit while enjoying the company of your best friends!
