6-day group road bike tour combined with classroom sessions to learn about bicycle touring. 18 riders plus 2 tour guides/instructors, camping, shared cooking. 137 miles in 4 riding days. Beginner level of difficulty. $659 As the experts on self-contained bicycle travel, we’d like to share our knowledge by offering our Introduction to Road Touring (IRT) course. Two days of open-air, informal campground discussions — including the classic panniers vs. trailer debate — will be followed by a fun, four-day tour in and around West Bend, Wisconsin, a small town on the Milwaukee River and just a few miles from the coast of Lake Michigan. This will give you the opportunity to test ride what you’ve learned in camp. Note that you’ll need to come to this intro course with some cycling skills and experience under your belt. But after graduating, you’ll be ready to hit the road on a loaded tour, whether it’s a solo outing, a trip with friends, or an Adventure Cycling group tour!
