We Celebrate Mixed Abilities
ONE TRIP, MANY EXPERIENCES Very few travelers share exactly the same expectations, interests and ability level, even if—maybe especially if—they're close in other ways. For some active travel companies this can be a real challenge. They design their trips for a narrow ability range and can't handle the rest of the spectrum, let alone a whole mix of abilities. Not so with Backroads. We ensure that every guest, whatever his or her ability level, enjoys a uniquely personal travel experience. Looking for a longer ride, while your companion prefers a leisurely morning spin, then maybe a stroll in the village or some spa time? Or is it vice versa? At Backroads we cater to everyone's priorities, so you each enjoy a trip that easily matches your style.
This Is How We Do It
TWO VANS We're there—where and when you need us. On many trips we'll even have three vans.
THREE LEADERS More leaders means we can be in more places at once, supporting everyone.
MULTIPLE DAILY ROUTES Each thoughtfully designed for a specific ability level.
DETAILED DIRECTIONS Without them, "going at your own pace" is an illusion. Don't be forced to follow others to find your way.
CLEAR MEETING POINTS Guests on different routes can converge for a fun event, then diverge again to do their own thing.
FELLOW TRAVELERS The right number of people to ensure company (if you want it) along the road or trail.
GREAT BIKES A choice of bikes ranging from Backroads Custom Titanium and Electric-Assist to our Specialized S-Works Roubaix and Ruby performance race models.
FLEXIBLE LAYOVER DAYS You can relax or do some exploring between great point-to-point walks or rides.
