On a bike, you can quite literally smell the roses, listen to the wind whistle through the trees (ideally a tailwind, of course), and feel the contour of the terrain beneath you. Travel should be about being in a place, not just passing through it. And, at a cyclist’s pace, whether you're a visitor or lived here your entire life, you’ll experience places in ways four-wheeled travelers will never know.
With Bike the South, you’ll enjoy low-traffic back roads and scenery that will take your breath away: sprawling farmlands, cascading waterfalls, crystal-clear rivers, majestic mountains, and inviting lakes. All in regions rich with history. And with memories waiting to be made.
What if I get lost?
What if my bike (or I) break down?
What if I really can’t make it those last 5 miles?
All guided tours come with a driver, support vehicle and ride-along guide. All supported tours include an escort rider, a support vehicle, or both. And all private self-guided tours offer your choice of an escort rider, a support vehicle, or both.
Your group. Your pace. Your tour.
Most programs include options for private tours, where you ride with family or friends along with options for a private guide and/or support van with driver.
Nearly every private tour can be adapted to be shorter/easier or longer/harder. Your guide will contact you in advance to discuss route options based on your interests, preferences and riding experience. It’s your ride!
