Rider Type Descriptions 

  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

Our tours for Intermediate riders are designed for competent cyclists who are looking to seriously extend themselves; they are comfortable and capable of riding in a bunch at a strong but steady pace; they ride 3-4 times a week, with rides of at least 2-3 hours in length on weekends often covering 150-200km per week; they like to ride on hilly terrain and enjoy the challenge of climbing and descending.

Our tours for Advanced riders are designed for highly competent cyclists who are looking for a serious challenge; they are comfortable and competent riding in a bunch setting and maintaining a strong steady pace. They ride 4-6 times a week, with rides of over 3-5 hours in length on weekends often covering 250-350km per week; they seek out hilly terrain and enjoy longer taxing climbs and can comfortably descend tight hairpins with steep gradients.
