The Ultimate in Cycling Freedom

Our supported, yet independent tours start most days of the week, and include luggage transfers.  You get everything you need for your bicycle trip in one package, including: turn-by-turn directions, maps, and other information to easily find your way.  There is no group to hold you back nor a tour leader to push you along.  Travel at your own pace and enjoy a memorable vacation along historic and scenic towns and trails.

A self-guided bike tour from the Independent Tourist comes with the freedom to travel as you please, and at your own pace.  There is no rigid timetable typically found with the large supported and guided tours offered by most of our competitors.  It is, after all, your cycling vacation – follow your dreams!

Flexibility 

Cycling inn-to-inn makes the travel itself an integral part of your bike touring vacation, not just a means of getting to a destination.  Enjoy the sights along the way.  Take a leisurely lunch or skip it entirely.  Make the perfect photograph or sit and sketch sailboats in a harbor.  Or, explore the back roads, and take the long way to your next bed and breakfast.

Some of our biking trips offer an additional night at one or more locations, to allow more time to explore the area at your leisure.  We will recommend loops to follow on that second day, or you can decide to do something entirely different that day.  Start most days of the week (with some exceptions), and even form your own group of friends and family.  We will work out the details for you.

What’s Included:   Your pre-paid package will include:

  • All accommodations with breakfast
  • Start most days of the week (with some exceptions)
  • Luggage transfer to your next night’s lodging
  • Route guides, maps, and recommendations
  • Assistance with rentals
  • Emergency assistance and pick up

Difficulty and Pace  We have designed our bike tours with you in mind.  We have cycled in many lands for long days, and many miles, but we prefer reasonable distances on our active cycling vacations.  To accommodate others like us, our biking trips have an objective of 25 to 35 miles on an average day, when moving to the next inn.  Each day may vary by more or less miles.  However the bike tours are flexible, and usually allow longer alternative journeys to the next town as desired.
