A Better Way to See the World
Viva la Resolution!

Greetings Traveler,

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying a wonderful start to the New Year.

Were you a little lax in keeping your resolutions in 2012? Not to worry—here are a few achievable goals to help you get started in the new year...

It's been more than three decades since we first resolved to explore the planet actively—and to share that passion with our guests. And during the past 34 incredible years, we've kept our promise of redefining what a vacation can be and bringing you a better way to discover and connect with the world.

Here's to a happy and healthy 2013. We hope to see you out there on the road or trail soon!

Our Trip Consultants are here 7 days a week from 7 am to 5 pm. Give us a call at 800-462-2848 or visit us at

Our legendary fleet of expertly maintained bikes is truly the world's best. And now, in addition to our custom-designed titanium bikes, we're offering the top-of-the-line Specialized S-Works Roubaix and women's Ruby Pro, and the Co-Motion Torpedo tandem. Enjoy the ride!
Mallorca biking photo
Bike more, drive less... on the isle of Mallorca. Cycling on gorgeous (and nearly deserted) back roads beneath the sublime Mediterranean sun, you just might experience the ride of a lifetime!
Tuscany biking photo
Live in the moment... in Tuscany. Stop to smell the roses—or the Chianti Classico and pecorino toscano—and savor every wonderful moment in this place that practically invented living life to the fullest.
Spain biking photo
Spend less time at the office... head to the Pyrenees and Costa Brava. Pedaling amid pine-clad mountains, through whitewashed villages and past heavenly Mediterranean beaches, you'll swear the nine-to-five feels a million miles away.
Loire Valley biking photo
Laugh more often... in the Loire Valley. Fairytale castles, some of the most beautiful biking routes in France, delectable cuisine and superb Vouvray wines. We promise pleasures around every bend here in the Loire.
California Wine Country biking photo
Drink less beer... in Northern California's Wine Country. Sniff, swirl, slurp and cycle your way through famous vineyards, soaring redwoods and the Pacific Coast. And raise a toast to those delicious polyphenols!
Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon photo
Don't sweat the small stuff... in Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon. It's easy to disregard life's little annoyances when you're biking, hiking and basking in the grandeur of these epic national parks.
Yellwstone and grand tetons photo
Get closer to nature... in Yellowstone and the Tetons. Elk as common as tourists. Thundering waterfalls and geysers exploding like clockwork. Any closer to nature and you'd be grazing with the bison.
