Level 2 and 2.5 bicycle tours

Not too hard, not too easy, just right

For riders who enjoy hills and the occasional steeper climb. For those who maybe don’t consider themselves serious cyclists but enjoy some activity and don’t mind working up a bit of a sweat. If you are new to bike touring some days might be a challenge but the satisfaction at the end of the day’s ride will be totally worth it.

On average, level 2 – 2.5 bike tours will ride 30-50 km per day on mostly rolling terrain. 

  • Average daily mileage: 30-50km. Be sure to check the day by day itinerary description for the tour you are considering for specific mileages.  Some days maybe be longer but usually won’t include much elevation gain.
  • Terrain: Mostly rolling terrain. Some days may include multiple 3% to 4% climbs. May present an occasional steeper climbs but they tend to be short.
