Fully Supported Tours

An Adventure Cycling fully supported tour is a great choice for the adventure-hungry cyclist who prefers riding with a larger group and a smaller load — the individual who relishes the freedom of riding unencumbered but still enjoys camping and a cycling challenge.

Besides lightening your load, the presence of the support vehicle adds a degree of security in that you’ll have a ride available in the case of injury, illness, or mechanical breakdown. Meanwhile, our knowledgeable, experienced leaders can share information about the area you’re cycling through and solve any problems or concerns that may arise — remember, this is a vacation!

Our fully supported tours occupy a special niche in the universe of supported bicycle tours: All personal and group gear is transported daily by a vehicle, but home on most nights is a “room with plenty of elbow room” — under the stars, that is, at a nice campsite. Some trips have occasional indoor overnights included in the tour price, and additional indoor options are usually available at the rider’s own expense.

“The caterers were exceptional! Gourmet dinners were awesome. Their service and menu are worthy of 4-star cuisine recognition. The staff were tremendous as well. The event director has put together a great tour, and the director built an excellent team. Positive reinforcement, genuine care and concern, and spot-on advice. The system satisfactorily delivered to me the essential information within 24 hours of my signing up. The Google group was a great resource to review and see previous questions/issues addressed. Bottom line: I will likely do this tour as well as the North Carolina tour in the future.”  — 2016 Tour Participant
