Keep in mind
We work hard to maintain consistency across all of our tours, but some trips have unique differences. Here are some things to keep in mind about this tour.
A great tour for novice cyclists in terms of daily distance and terrain type. Bike handling skills are necessary when negotiating bike paths (usually in or near cities and towns). Also ideal for experienced cyclists who desire shorter days on the bike and plenty of time to enjoy the destination, food and activities. We will ride 44-55 km (27-35 mi) per day, over flat to rolling terrain, on paved backroads and bike paths with little vehicle traffic. On some short stretches we share the roads with cars. Experienced cyclists who want longer, optional rides at the end of the programmed ride will have these available (please inquire ahead).
