Riding at your comfort level starts with finding your comfort level. That’s where our chart can help.

Whether you ride for the breeze, the fitness, the transportation or the suffering of it all, Trek Travel has a trip that fits your lifestyle. Some destinations are built for light riding, with shorter rides over easier terrain. And some trips are built for the mountain goats, with high, jagged peaks and epic views. Which is right for you? Start by identifying your rider type. Then, check your favorite bike trips to make sure they suit your needs.

My lifestyle is...

I'm relatively fit and am comfortable with hills that are less than half a mile in length. I want to ride on my vacation, but not every day.

I enjoy...

Slight inclines, but like it to be mostly flat. I also don't mind hopping in the support van when I've ridden enough.

I'm comfortable climbing...

750 ft

False flats, short climbs, and anything on city roads. Less is ok with me.

I can ride...

15 miles

on average, up to 35 miles on a long day.
