Use the descriptions to determine your current skill level and be aware that our tours are designed as a Vacation, not a race !
Pace at every level is relaxed, is enjoy the scenery, the people, the food.
Nevertheless on tour you will cycle almost every day and pre-trip training is always recommended.


My Lifestyle is:
I ride my bike on a regular basis either for fitness, to commute to work, or just for fun. Active lifestyle with an occasional physical challenge. I want to ride on my vacation, but not every day.

I enjoy
Rolling terrain with some hills that are not challenging. I feel great after reaching the top. I don’t mind hopping in the support van when I’ve ridden enough


My Lifestyle is:
Fitness is central to my life. I ride my bike regularly, on a weekly basis, and am comfortable with rides of 2 hours or more at a relatively
strong pace. I like a physical challenge and to feel my heart rate increase.
I enjoy:
All terrain, with hills and some moderate mountain passes that I can brag about. I like getting some speed on moderate descents as well. I track elevation and feel comfortable climbing.


My Lifestyle is:
I ride my bike an average of 100 miles per week and enjoy a fast pace for an extended period of time. I love train, improve, and maybe even race my friends.

I enjoy
All terrain, with hills and big mountain passes. Steep technical descents are fun.
