We offer the most flexible bike tours in the industry with minimal financial commitment and the widest latitude for rescheduling.
Overnight or Multi-Day Tours: Pricing and how it works
Planning the tour. All of our overnight private bicycle tours are put together by proposal after an initial consultation. For multi-day tours for groups of up to 6 people, a non-refundable deposit of $500-1200 is typically required to hold a date (it can be tentative). This deposit pays for the customized planning of your tour and you will receive a tour plan that is yours to keep, regardless of whether you do the tour. The tour plan includes all the information to do the tour, including maps, GPS navigation, accommodations, etc. and you can request edits or changes to the tour plan as it is developed. If you are unable to do your tour, the tour plan is still there to be used on a different set of dates, and you would not need to pay the deposit again if you used this same plan. You can also purchase a planning product on its own if you want to do your ride self-contained. See our tour planning page for more.
Operating the tour. The fee to operate the tour is billed separately, and is (generally) not due until a week before the tour date, which gives you maximum flexibility to cancel or postpone your tour without fear of losing the entire cost of your vacation. The tour operation fee is typically about $900 per day (per group, not per person) for a package that includes Lukas operating the tour for you with a minivan. Lukas will be with your group all day and can carry all luggage and personal items in the minivan while you ride. Break stops can be set up as frequently as you like and Lukas is always on stand-by to pick up or help any riders with mechanical problems. The $900 fee pays for this staff time, the minivan and insurance. Accommodations, meals, bike rentals and other add-ons are billed separately. Groups above 6 in size pay a different rate depending on how the tour operates.

Single-Day Tours: Pricing and how it works
Day tours are also put together by proposal after an initial consultation and are typically priced around $900 for groups of up to 6 people. For a day tour the non-refundable deposit is $200 with the balance due 3 days before the tour.
Please be advised that while the costs above are the typical prices for groups of up to 6 riders, the final cost of the tour depends where the ride will take place, number of people, logistical requirements, etc. To get started, call Lukas at 917-748-1119 or email him at email@example.com and he can work with you to create your perfect bike tour.
