|General Tour Information|
Support StaffAll tours feature experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive staff. We offer excellent client to staff ratio, typically one staff to every 5 to 8 cyclists. All our staff are cyclists and know what you need to achieve your goals.
LodgingAll cyclists will be housed in AAA rated hotels and motels. All overnight locations are chosen for quality, comfort and cleanliness. Cyclists can choose the accomodation level they prefer: Economy Level (triple); Preferred Choice (double); Privacy Level (single). (There is no Economy Level option for the 'Maine Foliage Tour' or the 'Fall Foliage Classic'). Single and double room occupancy is always available. Please see our pricing chart for rates.
MealsBreakfast and dinner are provided daily (breakfast and lunch only on the 'Fast America' series). Organized meals will be served in fine restaurants or hotel function rooms. Many meals are buffet style fare. All meals are nutritionally balanced to provide the cyclist with sufficient fuel to conquer the miles. Vegetarians are accommodated and welcomed.
Scheduled SAG StopsStops are provided at reasonable intervals throughout the cycling day (25-40 miles). These stops give the cyclist an opportunity to rest and refuel with snacks, fresh fruit, water and sport drinks.
Mechanical SupportProvided in our exclusive rolling bike shop. Our mechanic is available in the morning before you depart, throughout the day and each afternoon to repair, adjust and troubleshoot mechanical problems. (No hidden repair charges.)
Support VehiclesAll tours have a superior ratio of support vehicles to cyclists. From luggage and equipment trucks to mechanic and SAG vans, support vehicles are visible and on the route daily to provide assistance and transportation. SAG vehicles are 15 passenger vans that have great capacity to transport cyclists, their bicycles and gear. Support vans are equipped with a modern communication system.
Cycling StaffRide leaders are on the road on bicycles to assist with direction, repairs, encouragement or as ride companions.
Luggage TransportationExclusive support team truck carries all your full-size baggage directly from motel to motel. This allows you the freedom to only carry what you need for the day on the bike.
Route RapDaily route briefing, usually after dinner. Here, maps and cue sheets are distributed. Route issues, weather, terrain and local sights are discussed.
Bicycles and HelmetsA well-tuned road or touring bike is our advice to riders, however, you may ride a tandem or recumbent if you choose. All riders are required to wear a Snell approved helmet at all times when cycling. No exceptions!
Orientation and ReceptionAt the beginning of each tour, the Ride Director will review the event in great detail from start to conclusion. This will include an overview of the route, terrain, logistics, meals, safety, and much more. You will learn what to expect and how the support works. This is immediately followed by a welcoming reception.
