Road and mountain biking are an excellent way to explore rural roads, trails and towns. Several of our multi sport adventures include single day and multi day bicycle tours. Rides are generally short, less than thirty miles, and focus on experiencing the route rather than racing toward the final destination. The pace is relaxed with plenty of stops along the way to enjoy the surroundings. Many of our outfitters are avid bikers and have established unique and beautiful rides especially for AdventureSmith Explorations. Rides are often supported by vehicles in case of a flat tire or to assist with long hill climbs. Difficulty can range from short easy rides over flat terrain to challenging climbs and downhills over hilly terrain. Mountain biking is often on rural dirt roads, however singletrack is available in some cases. Active travelers who enjoy bicycling will appreciate bike tours that highlight a regions nature, history and culture.
After a hearty breakfast start riding from your accommodations or transfer to the starting point in a van. Guides will review safety procedures and overview of the route. We ride at a leisurely pace, stopping for points of interest, wildlife or chance encounters with local people sharing the roads. Stop for a relaxing lunch at a restaurant or enjoy a picnic lunch in a scenic stop. The ride may conclude at lunch or continue into the afternoon, depending on the itinerary. Late afternoon return to your accommodations for a well deserved dip in the pool or rest in a hammock. Routes and distances are flexible and may vary depending on local conditions.
Length of time, distance riding and route can vary considerably from short flat rides on paved roads to long rides on technical dirt trails with considerable elevation gain and loss. Generally physical requirements are moderate however it is important to choose a trip that suits your physical condition and level of experience. Our staff can assist with this. If you enjoy the occasional bike ride at home, you will appreciate this fun and exciting method of exploration.
