Cycle the USA with TourzPlus!

by Jessie Beyer - Thursday, June 11, 2020

We realize some of you might be looking for a bicycle tour a bit closer to home this summer! Through our TourzPlus program we have partnered with a small number of tour operators who provide tours that meet ExperiencePlus!’s standards. These tours will not be exactly the same as ours – for instance there won’t be our signature chalk dust arrows, or, in some cases, you may ride as a group. However we still promise you will have an excellent vacation bicycling through stunning parts of the US.  Here are a few options for you with listed departures.

If you have a group of 5 or more people who want to organize a private departure let us know and we’ll get you all set up with your own date!
