What types of bikes do you offer and how do I know what bike type is best for me?

We’re so focused on offering the right bike for YOU that we’ve developed our own bikes to suit different riding styles. Our custom-built, titanium bikes have been perfected over 40+ years of running great bike trips.

The great equalizer is our Electric-Assist Bike (E-bike), a lightweight titanium bike with lower top tubes for easier mounting and dismounting. This bike makes it easy to flatten hills by giving you a boost when you need it, and helps people of different abilities comfortably ride together. 

Our Performance Road Bike is a drop-bar bike designed to be light, fast and responsive. It’s built for avid riders who enjoy powering up climbs and speeding through the countryside. This sleek bike features top-of-the-line components including Shimano Di2 electronic shifting. 

Our Touring Bike is suited for a wide range of cyclists who enjoy an adjustable upright riding position. It features a comfortable ergonomic seat, and a wide range of gears. 

Ride like a pro with a carbon upgrade, the Cannondale Synapse Hi-MOD (Europe/Canada) or the Canyon Endurance CF SLX 9 Di2 (US) – for our most serious riders. Available upon request for $650 (subject to availability).

When booking your trip, please reserve your preferred style and size as soon as possible. Bike requests are sometimes subject to availability, particularly during peak season, and especially for e-bikes and carbon frames. In the rare cases of limited availability, the sooner we receive your request, the more likely we’re able to fill it.
