 Save on a Fall Foliage Bike Tour in New England's Berkshires

Fall foliage in New England

Fall in New England is one of those things that you just need to experience by bike in order to truly appreciate the beauty and wonder of the season. Seeing our colorful fall foliage, breathing in the smell of fallen leaves in the crisp fall air, and swooping along perfect biking roads is a thrill for any road cyclist. This year, we're making it a little easier for you to join us for our Autumn in the Berkshires bike tour with a $200/person discount when you book by July 15 (valid only for tours booked between 6/21 and 7/15/12).

The Berkshires tour begins in Great Barrington, MA at the Windflower Inn, located on a beautiful ten-acre country setting. After our warmup spin through the surrounding countryside, we get to know each other over wine and hors d'oeuvres around the hearth back at the inn. And that sets the merry mood for our six-day Western Massachusetts foliage tour. Each night finds us in specially-chosen country inns (Devonfield, pictured below, was once home to Queen Wilhemina of the Netherlands!) and dining at renown local restaurants in Great Barrington, Lee, and Lenox.

1. How many days will I be actually be cycling? Also…
You’ve chosen a cycling vacation for a reason. Make sure you know exactly how much time you’ll spend cycling (and what you’ll be doing if you take a day off).
• Will we be cycling on the first and last days • Are some days optional loop rides and will there be interesting things to do if I want a day off the bike? • Are there different mileage options to keep my biking partner happy?

Today's post is all about Algarve, on the south coast of Portugal. Don't blame us if you find yourself wanting to book a bike tour by the time you reach the end!

Summer bike tour season is in full swing, and we are living vicariously through our tour guests and bike tour guides. Last week our Algarve Blue tour riders enjoyed perfect weather for cycling under blue skies and took in even-bluer ocean views. Tour guide extraordinaire Gonçalo captured the tour and the best of Portugal in an incredible video. You can watch by clicking on the image below or by visiting our YouTube channel
