On a Discovery Bicycle tour, you ride at your own pace from inn to inn and enjoy fine food and great lodging. You are pampered by engaging leaders and supported by a van that moves your luggage and serves as your traveling snack bar and bike repair shop. This is our 37th year of leading bicycle tours and we take great pride in showing you the most beautiful and least traveled corners of our special world.
Your adventure is made up of a number of special experiences, both large and small. You will be enthralled with the handsome churches, spectacular views, historic sites, and quaint towns.
Equal to these larger sensations will be your memory of the bright taste of an apple you just picked; the friendliness of the owner of a general store; visiting a sugarhouse and sampling pure maple syrup; getting to know folks in your group; enjoying iced tea on the porch of your inn; riding a ferry across Lake Champlain; hiking on a forested trail; seeing deer on the edge of a pasture in the evening; listening to the clatter of your bicycle as you cross the hardwood flooring of a covered bridge; soothing your feet in the flow of a brook; feeling satisfied at the end of the day's ride; or taking an evening stroll along a quiet dirt road.
Part of the experience is also in the absence of things such as cell phones, billboards, decisions, cars, and bustle. The cycling is all at your own pace, but so is everything else. We do the organizing, the planning and the lugging. You enjoy yourself.
So while the cycling is an important part of the adventure, it is really just one perfect part of a total experience. You are engaged in a bicycle tour- and in a whole range of places, sounds, smells, and perceptions.
