401-Level Bicycle Tours

401-Level Tours

For cyclists who love to climb (and descend)! If you haven’t trained or are an inexperienced rider you will find these trips very challenging and will very likely need to shuttle regularly.
  • Average daily mileage: 50 to 75 km (35 – 45 miles). Be sure to check the day by day itinerary description for the tour you are considering for specific mileages.
  • Terrain: 401 tours are challenging. Expect the possibility of longer mileage days of 50 to 70 miles with rolling terrain, or some sustained hills for considerable distances - think mountain passes, or steeper (+5%) climbs that come with regularity and could be as long as 10 km (6+ miles). You will have gains of 1000 meters (3000 feet) on a third of the days. You'll find specific information on the "Tour Facts" page of each itinerary where you see the tour rating.
