Mark Friis, Owner/Operator of Wheel Tales has been a lifetime cyclist and cycling enthusiast. Mark will be making a presentation on his upcoming 2018 calendar of events. Wheel Tales pricing is less than 1/2 the costs of other cycling travel tours. If you have ever thought about going on an amazing out of state cycling adventure, then you don't want to miss this meeting. There will also be plenty of time for Q &A's during the meeting.
Each Tour is unique from terrain to length. MIles average about 65 miles but the elevation gain varies tremendously. There are exceptions like the Sierra Challenge, but most tours are accessible for the average rider. We welcome all abilities with the understanding that sometimes the SAG van will need to utilize to make sure as many riders are supported. As everyone soon realizes these trips are more about the time spent off the saddle than in.
These adventures are about so much more than the rides. We take the time to visit local establishments, especially breweries, wineries, and eateries. Taking part in the local environment and supporting those businesses that create the unique vibe is essential. Stop and stop often to enjoy yourself. Don't be surprised if we enjoy some hikes and other adventures off the bike.
One of the distinctive components of biking is you see things that other forms of travel can miss. The efficiency allows for greater distances, but the openness can give a chance to connect with the land. These tours offer so much in landscapes and roads that leave wanting more. From start to finish the outdoor experience is essential element. And even off the bike you can find more chances to connect. Lake and river swimming, beach strolls, hot springs and more.
