We are transitioning

Self guided tours are fun and exciting; just like
guided tours. So what's the difference?
provide one or more bilingual guides, a van to help you along the way
with anything from drinks and snacks to repairs and many other great
amenities that all add to the cost of your tour. By eliminating
some of these services, you can save money while still experiencing the
most exciting aspects of a European cycling tour.
On your tours, you will have great bikes, so mechanical
problems are unlikely, and there are few roads and they are well
marked. So you and your friends will experience the fun in
finding your way and the flexibility to be totally spontaneous.
We offer three different variations. Choose the
one you like best.
Traditional Self Guided Tours
On traditional self guided tours, 1, 2 or more people decide that
they would like to tour together. These trips are perfect for cycling
clubs or groups of 4 or more who want to create their own adventure or
even a couple who just want to explore at the own pace. I am are here
to help you at every step. We can create customized trips to meet your
Group Self Guided Tours
This is a great option for people who like the self guided concept, but
are concerned about cycling alone in a foreign country will be to
much for them.
On a group self guided tour, people get together to form a community
where some people may speak a little French or Italian, other are
comfortable changing flat tires, or map reading.....you get
idea. It's very much like the comfort of cycling with a
cycling group or a few of your friends.
Only you are doing it in a grand new place.
My Guided Tours
Once a year, I lead a Group Self Guided Tour. And though I'm
not a lot different from anyone else I would expect to see on one of
our tours, you get the benefit of my
experience. From a philosophical point of view we are still
a community of cyclists supporting each other on a Group Self Guided
If you still think that fully supported guided tours are more
to your liking or just want to compare, take a look at these
where I recommend some great fully supported tour companies.
