What is a Self-Guided Bike Tour?

As your bike trail experts, our goal is to create an unforgettable experience on the trail for busy bike enthusiasts like you. On a self guided bike tour you’ll ride the trail on your own, following a trip plan created for you. We’ve worked hard to create a variety of trip packages to allow you to find the pace that works best for you.

Bike trails like the Great Allegheny Passage and Katy Trail are perfect for an independent bike trip. It’s safe, one-way (so no getting lost!), well-marked and ridden daily by a variety of cyclists. You’ll travel through small towns that provide great local character to your bike trip.
