Why are Vacation Bicycilng trips significantly less in price than other bike tour companies? -The most frequently asked question
We are a small company and have flexibility to plan and design trips that will maximize each dollar spent. We are also pretty good negotiators and planners to keep our overhead/fixed costs to a minimum. Combining these three attributes allow us to offer what we feel are the best value in bicycle tours. Come join us!
 
Tipping?
All Vacation Bicycling prices include all tips.
Our company has a strict no tipping policy.  Most bicycle tour companies expect their participants to pay an extra "recommended tip" that can be $200 or more at the end of the trip to pay the tour guides. With Vacation Bicycling, your fee is inclusive of all tips.
 
Prices
All Vacation Bicycling prices are constant. We do not send emails or last minute offers of lower prices than posted on the website. Once we post a price for a trip that price remains the same for all participants.

 
How long have you been doing tours?
In 2017 Vacation Bicycling is celebrating our 11th year anniversary!

 
How much?
$200 due to reserve your spot and the remainder due 45 days before the trip start.

 
What is the deadline?
Most trips fill quickly, reserve now to avoid being left behind and join the fun!
 
Do most trips have singles or couples?
On most prior trips there have been a mixture of both. Looking at the numbers, the breakdown is about 40% are independently traveling with the remainder traveling as couples.

 
Single traveler?
Single room supplement = $450. Due to lodging and restaurant contractual obligations, changes or refunds cannot be made for cancellations later than 45 days before trip start. We recommend acquiring travel insurance from a company such as allianztravelinsurance.com. If you have asked us to help find a roommate and a same sex roommate is not available then we will split the single supplement with you.
 
What type of bike should I bring?
We recommend road or hybrid bicycles, but all types of bikes have been used on the trips. All of the rides are on paved bicycle trails or bicycle recommended roads, so no worries about tires popping.
 
How fast do I need to ride?
Everyone rides at their own speed. As long as you can ride at least 10 miles per hour, you should have a very enjoyable vacation.
 
Cancellation?
In the event of a need to cancel your reservation, the cancellation fee is $200 per person, or we will gladly transfer your deposit to a future trip as long as the cancellation is made no later than 45 days before trip start. Due to lodging and restaurant contractual obligations, refunds or transfers cannot be made for cancellations later than 45 days before trip start. We recommend acquiring travel insurance from a company such as allianztravelinsurance.com.

 
Weather?
Normally, we ride in all weather conditions, but you can always take the SAG vehicle if you do not feel comfortable riding that day.
 
How many riders?
All of our trips are designed for bicyclists that enjoy the outdoors and the social aspect of bicycling vacations. With this in mind, we strive for groups of around 15-20 people. We have found this number of people allows like-minded riders to form friendships and bonds with others of similar interests and/or abilities.
