Your Trip

What to know

This trip involves cycling for up to 34 kilometres a day on long rides, sometimes on hilly terrain.

This is a self-guided adventure and does not include the services of a tour leader.

What's Included

Transport

Non-included Meals

Some meals are included on your trip (except for North America trips - please refer to your day-to-day itinerary). However, sometimes we think you'll benefit from getting out and discovering the local cuisine. So when a meal is not included, it's a great opportunity to try something new. For group trips, ask your leader for tips on where to get the best meal, or you might decide to dine out as a group and experience the fun together.

Not Included
