In Focus: National Bike Summit

The 2015 National Bike Summit, organized by the League of American Bicyclists, was held last week on Capitol Hill. Their objective, to increase investments in bicycling, aligns closely with our mission to encourage a passion for cycling.

The theme? Bikes+. It is time to consider how bikes can add value to other movements and serve broader interests.
The goal? Unite the voices of bicyclists to advance bike safety and funding.
The outcome? More than 650 bicyclists came together for workshops, case studies, brainstorming, lobbying and more.

Trek Travel President Tania Burke attended the event again this year. “The event was great. There are a lot of passionate bike advocates working really hard to not only make a more bike friendly world but to also create great places to live. The Mayor of Oklahoma City went through what they are doing and it is inspiring.”

In Focus: Strade Bianche

Last Saturday, pros pounded down the white gravel roads of Tuscany as they made their way to the Piazza del Campo in Siena.

In his first appearance at the race, Zdenek Stybar won the 2015 Strade Bianche after riding away from Greg Van Avermaet into the final corner. Trek Travel guides Jacob Young and Jonathan Hershberger were at the race, along with Trek Factory Racing fan club members, to enjoy the excitement of this incredible finish.

In Focus: America’s Grand Tour

This week ‘In Focus’ we’re throwing it back to the 2010 Amgen Tour of California. The fifth anniversary of the race held lots of excitement for our guides and guests as Australian Michael Rogers fought to hold off Americans David Zabriskie and Levi Leipheimer.

Captrued by Trek Travel Marketing Manager Mark Thomsen, the photo below was taken at the Stage 4 start in San Jose. Looking back at our 2010 itinerary we see many similarities to this year’s trip, with stays at the Westlake Village Inn and Lake Arrowhead Resort and a live race viewing of the stage finish on Big Bear.

Five years later, this year’s race marks the 10th Anniversary of the Amgen Tour of California! Ride along the Pacific coast and into the mountains above Santa Barbara’s “American Riviera”; attend the individual time trial at Big Bear; and enjoy the suspense of a summit stage finish at Mt Baldy. Cheer with the crowds as they urge their heroes onwards and sip cocktails at an exclusive Trek Travel party. To top off this ultimate Tour of California vacation, spend the last two days riding and relaxing in the beauty of the Santa Monica Mountains and Malibu coastline.

Drawing from our years of experience providing unparalleled vacations to cycling’s greatest races, we promise to bring you closer to the action than ever before.

In Focus: “Schleck Travel”

We are excited to announce that Andy Schleck will be joining us on a handful of cycling vacations in 2015. Join us in welcoming Andy to the Trek Travel team!

We already introduce you to the Trek Factory Racing team through our race trips. We already give you the chance to ride with Jens Voigt in places like Solvang. Now, we’re adding Andy Schleck to our pro roster. He’s signed up to join us on our Etape du Tour trip in July and Mallorca Ride Camp in May. If you’ve ever wanted to be on a first-name basis with one of history’s finest riders, here’s your chance.

Choose to join a few thousand other crazy cyclists at the Etape du Tour and ride your way through a Tour de France mountain stage. Or visit the enchanting island of Mallorca to test your legs in Andy’s old training grounds. There is simply no other way to ride with this former champion. And no excuse to pass this opportunity by.

We call it ‘Schleck Travel’. Are you ready?

In Focus: Crossing from Czech Republic to Austria

Every Trek Travel vacation offers something distinctive and our voyage from Prague to Vienna is no exception.

Of course you’ll be swept away by the Baroque architecture, the medieval villages like Cesky Krumlov, the colorful farmlands, the lazy Danube River, the rich Austrian wines, the ostentatious castles that dot the landscape and the sincere hospitality of the locals. But what makes this vacation truly unique is experiencing the overwhelming difference in culture and aesthetics as you cross the border from one country to the next. Everything is imminently different: the roads, the food, the language, the architecture, the focus on beverages from beer to wine, the history, even the flower boxes illustrate a change in prosperity and lifestyle.

Hopefully you make it across…

In Focus: The First Ascent

Cycling fans have dreamt of riding the routes of their pro cycling heroes. Each year a lucky few get the chance to experience those dreams by riding the Etape du Tour, as race organizers select one of the event’s most challenging stages and offer amateurs the opportunity to tackle the entire route.

The weather can be intense and unpredictable. Food is often scarce and rest stops sometimes lack water. But with Trek Travel, your support is always there. Our separately designated rest stops will always have plenty of food, ice cold beverages, and full mechanical support. By the time you roll into the finishing town, you’ll have done battle in the Alps in spectacular fashion like the heroes of cycling.
