mountain bike tours

 
January 2020 Update:    Winter is here and our single day mountain and gravel tours are on hiatus. What happened to our fat bike tours? Good question. Given how fat biking is incredibly condition-dependent, we had difficulty guaranteeing that these tours would run on a consistent basis. Too warm, too much snow, not enough snow......arg! As a result, we are offering them by special request only. Call to inquire.
In the meantime, new bikes are getting assembled and hung on hooks while last year's are being sold. We're poring over maps, launching new itineraries and planning new projects. When the snow melts get ready to pedal and party. 

HALF-DAYtours
