We've got a lot of fantastic tour leaders here at Adventure Cycling, as well as our fantastic tours themselves! Often a tour leader can take a tour experience from alright to amazing, as I'm sure you know. So how are you supposed to choose? Well, we've selected two of our best for you this week, both leading fall tours along the Pacific Coast, and pitted them against each other to help you decide which leader style is right for you!
A bicycle route network launched by the European Cyclists Federation is made up of 12 routes and goes through multiple countries. EuroVelo is supported by national, regional and local governments, commercial serice providers and a leading sponsor, the Accell Group. The 12 routes will total 66,000 km when the system is complete. At present, 45,000 km are in place.
