Bicycle Vacations

2 to 4 day vacations for 2015 have not yet been determined.
We offer vacations from two to four days with overnight accommodations in hotels or lodges.  Your luggage will be transported leaving you free to enjoy your adventure. These are not simply bicycle vacations that happen to have some non-cycling activities. There are numerous non-cycling activities along the way and non-cyclists are most welcome!  For those of you that will be riding your bikes, we strive to give you the most scenic routes possible.  Plan on riding 50 to 60 miles per day with multiple extracurricular opportunities along the route.  The route will be marked and a support vehicle will be at critical points to store purchases or provide access to walking shoes.   Bike-Ohio.com will provide lunch and dinners when and where there are no facilities available.  

The vacation tours will be limited to 20 people.  Typically we do not seek luxury lodging, though we will select luxury accommodations if there is no other choice.   Most rooms we reserve have 2 beds in them.  We limit occupancy to 2 people per room.  Exceptions to the two beds two people per room will be noted.  If you are traveling solo you will be assigned a room mate of the same sex.   Traveling pairs will be assigned to the same room. Traveling couples may be assigned the same bed where we could not secure a room with two beds.  Traveling pairs and couples will receive a $25 per person discount off the vacation package rate.
