Here’s a quick look at some of the bikes featured in our fleet of 4,000 bikes. Feel free to picture yourself on one of these beauties coasting down a scenic back road through Napa Valley on the U.S. West Coast or at the top of a challenging Alpine pass in Northern Italy on a bicycle tour of Europe.
This bike is custom-built and we offer different models based on the type of terrain you’ll be riding on. The frame is made of lightweight titanium and it features an ergonomic saddle and adjustable handlebar. This bike is included in the price of your trip.
Want to ride like the pros? Well, the S-Works Roubaix is the way to do it. This feather-light carbon bike features the legendary Shimano Dura-Ace drive train and brakes, as well as the top-of-line DT Swiss Tricon wheel set. It’s a three-time winner of the Paris-Roubaix and not only offers top-of-the-line performance, it also provides a pretty comfy ride. Reserving the S-Works Roubaix requires an additional $400 fee.
The Specialized Ruby Pro is precisely designed for women with short-reach brake levers, anatomically contoured Body Geometry saddles, and all-new handlebars designed with a short reach and shallow drop. This agile speed machine features customized tubing and geometry to the upgraded DT Swiss Tricon wheel set and the vibration-dampening carbon fork with Zertz inserts. It is also an additional $400 fee.
This bicycle made for two features a hand-built frame with a custom cro-moly (high carbon) steel. It has powerful Avid disc brakes and many more features that make this bike a perfect way for tandem riders to experience flat terrain. The Torpedo is an additional $500 fee.
For trips that cover dirt roads and rougher paved roads, the titanium mountain bikes are custom designed for a more comfortable ride. They are used on biking trips in Argentina, China, India and Thailand and on multi-sport trips in Costa Rica, Dolomites, Ecuador, Galápagos and South Africa. This bike is included in the price of your trip.
