Van & Trailer Support
Sag support will be on route, visible, and available to help you at any time. Although some tours expect riders to pedal the entire route unless there is an emergency, we give you the option of shuttling at any time. This allows couples where one rider is stronger than the other to still enjoy the tour together.
The tour price includes full support while riding. We stock all the soft drinks, fruit juices, fruit, snacks, spring water and other refreshments that you could possible want in our support trailer.
We also stock all the GU, Power Bars, Energy drinks, electrolytes and anything else you require to get you through the day. Since we ride long distances ourselves we know what you need, and when we don't we ask you. Expect your favorite ride snacks to be stocked.
Each day there will also be a scenic lunch stop on the route with all you can eat in addition to the normal support snacks. The only meals you are responsible for are breakfast & dinner.
Breakfast & Dinner
On some Tours Breakfast & Dinner are included every night, on other tours riders are on their own for some of the meals. Check the information on the Left-Hand Sidebar for the Tour you are interested in.
When meals are included in the Tour we dine at the finest restaurant in the area, either a local town favorite or the National Park Lodge dining room.
On the nights riders dine on their own, we will suggest a preferred restaurant and dinner time, usually 6:00pm, for those who wish to eat as a group. Riders can choose between something simple for dinner or dine at the finest restaurant in the area.
Explore the Dining links on the Tour Summary sidebar on each tour webpage for descriptions of the best restaurant at each of our stops.
The tour price includes 5-8 nights lodging, double occupancy. We stay at very comfortable hotels, resorts and National Park Lodges. We strive for lodging with a minimum AAA 3 star rating. To qualify for our tour, we look for hotels with comfortable "clean" rooms, a pool, Jacuzzi, and fantastic views.
Explore the hotel links on the Tour Summary sidebar on each tour webpage for hotel descriptions.
The tour price includes all lodging, double occupancy. If you are traveling alone and would like your own private room, our Single Supplement is very inexpensive. Otherwise, if you like we can try to pair you with a roommate.
Shuttles and transportation are included on some of our Tours. All details will be provided in the RIDERS GUIDE after registering for your tour. The Tour Summary sidebar for each tour lists the connecting airport, and the local shuttle company if you need to book your own shuttle..
Each day your luggage will be transferred to the next Hotel. Don't want that wind breaker you wore this morning? No problem. You will never be far from our 15 passenger van towing a custom built trailer. Just hand it to them as they go by.
Detailed Route Slips
Our route slips include Detailed Elevation Charts so you know how much climbing you'll be doing each day. You'll know what to expect for the next day's ride, and what some of the "must see" sites are along the route and at the next national park. We have ridden and hiked extensively in the area and know all the best riding, hiking and dining spots along the way. Tell us what you'd like to do and we will make it happen!
If you are driving, you may typically leave your vehicle at the first nights hotel until our return, or meet our shuttle at the airport. See the Riders Guide for the parking locations for each tour.
If you are flying and will be bringing your bike with you, we will provide storage for your case during the tour. If you don't wish to bring your bike along on the plane, you may ship it to the first night's hotel where it will be waiting for you. We recommend using either FedEx or UPS.
We strongly recommend having your bike tuned up a week or two before the tour so you know it is in top running condition. Ride it after it is tuned up so you know everything is operating properly.
