Adventure and the open road isn’t just for the advanced cyclist. Beginner tours are tailored to the needs of the green rider, ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of all participants. Feel the wind in your hair and smell the fresh scents of the countryside while cycling a gentle path, easy trail or mellow road.
Easy rides with clear directions, manageable distances, and gentle grades means enjoyable riding for even the most nervous riders. Dedicated bike pathways, gentle country lanes, or easy trails will lead you to comfortable accommodations and delicious food at the end of every day while maximizing the cultural experiences and sites of significance you see along the way.
The landscapes vary from riverside strolls and shady back lanes to mountain pathways where the difficult stretches are often achieved with the support of a tour van, or avoided completely with good route planning. This ensures the ride will be enjoyed by all ages, ability, and comfort levels, leaving the focus on the experiences and culture rather than the intensity of the ride. Food and wine tours are often kept more simple; the focus is on the off-bike activities as much as the riding itself, as are urban tours and culture crawls.
Rides will be mellow in nature while still maximizing the experience for the rider. Fitness and skill levels will be matched by rides with few or no obstacles and manageable distances. Riders are expected to ride no more than two hours at a time, with little or no intense climbing. Beginner tours are best suited for families, senior riders, and those who spend little consistent time on a bike. If you are new to cycling, or are at a base level of skill and fitness, then a beginner cycle tour is for you.
