Cycling and Mountain Biking Tours
Mountain Bike Tours
Perhaps you were motivated by the Tour de France or just
seeing other cyclists or mountain bikers out riding and having fun. If cycling
or mountain biking is new to you, many guides have several trips that are the
perfect introduction. You will need to learn some basic shifting and climbing
skills. With most tours you don't have to carry anything on your bike. The
support truck carries all the gear and the guides do all the cooking, and
washing the dishes. You get to relax after a day of cycling.
Road cycling tours come in all shapes and sizes from staying
overnight at Inns and eating at restaurants to camping tours in National Parks.
From large day tours of 1000 plus riders to local charity rides of a few
hundred cyclists, or a tour of 30 riders, they all come with great food. Road
cycling tours offer many unique and fun vacations in spectacular locations,
tremendous value, and as a side note health benefits. You can use your own bike
or rent one, but you will need to purchase some good cycling apparel and
Mountain biking is mostly riding off road, but much of the
time you are riding on backcountry dirt roads. A mountain biking experience is
usually slower than road biking, dustier, and with shorter climbs. The bicycles
are different and designed to do a special job; ask your guide what type of
bike you will need.
Road cycling and mountain biking are a great way to meet
people and the longer the ride the more time you have to get acquainted.
