While any bicycle tourist will enjoy the tour, it’s ideal for first-timers and leisure travelers. The tour is self-guided, but you’re not self-contained. Daily luggage transfers are provided so you just need to carry your daily gear. At the start, the local bike-tour company meets you, fits you to your hybrid touring bikes, and provides detailed maps, cue sheets and route information. They’re just a phone call away in case of problems. You stay in charming three- and four-star hotels for the seven nights of your tour.
