Ride the Ridge
Seven days fully supported. You ride your bike with two water bottles. We move everything else while providing a route filled with views, snacks, sports drinks & water, an encouraging word here and there and, if necessary, a shuttle. You ride, while our challenge is to let you focus on fun while we handle the logistics,

Amazing experience
This is a trip not to be missed. The views along the way provide frequent rewards for the effort made to reach them. While there is a lot of climbing, most major climbs are more of the long pull variety rather than the "throw me a rope steep" variety. This ride challenges and generously rewards those that rise to meet it. Expect plenty of support, food and water along with a nice bed at the end of the evening and experiences that are truly unforgetable.
