Bicycle Adventure Club
If you’re experiencing a little “sticker shock” at the prices of a supported bike tour in Europe, this might be a good alternative. Riding with these folks will cost less than a fraction of what the for-profit tour groups charge. So what’s the catch? First of all, this is a non-profit group, and volunteers put together the tours. Second, you’ve got to bring your own bike.
Third, most trips are a little longer than a week, versus the typical one week that the other groups offer. Most BAC tours have van support, although on some of them the participants have to share van-driving duties. The biggest catch is that you have to plan WAY in advance, because many of the trips fill up quickly. Companions - With this group you’ll be riding with much more independent, experienced cyclists. Expect to meet lots of teachers, small-business owners and other self-sufficient types. Each tour varies so much in quality level (some are 2-star, some 4-star), that the same is true of the average participant's riding level.
