  Dear Traveler,

If you're short on time this summer or fall, fitting a vacation into your schedule may seem a tall order. But not to worry—we've got a thrilling collection of three-, four- and five-day trips in some of our most popular North American locales. Whether you're able to slip away for just a weekend or play a little bit longer, our quick getaways are an ideal way to maximize your time.

You might decide to bike leisurely from one boutique winery to the next in California's Alexander Valley. Or look forward to scenic rural riding followed by melt-in-your-mouth BBQ in Texas Hill Country. Or choose to spin amid pine forests, lighthouses and cranberry bogs off the coast of Cape Cod. While your vacation time may be limited, options for an extraordinary experience are infinite!

I hope you'll be inspired to join us soon,

We can't wait to introduce you to Hill Country, our favorite region of the Lone Star State. Cooled by gentle breezes and dotted with prickly pear cactus and live oak, it's a bicyclist's dream spot, more typical of Tuscany than Texas. Hope to see y'all here real soon!
