What Guests are Saying
Rider on a climb with mountain in the background

I had an incredible trip that exceeded my expectations. I initially thought this would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but now I know I'll be doing it again. The race viewing perks, including the hotel rooms for changing, food, and warm, dry viewing areas, were top-notch and truly set this trip apart. The bike was amazing and the guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure everything was just perfect.
