All the Small Things

A Trek Travel guide lifting bikes from the Trek Travel van.

Sometimes magic comes in unexpected packages, like not having to worry about bringing pedals or a helmet (we’ve got you covered), or in the photos we collect and share with you after every vacation. It’s all part of our relentless, driven mission to make you smile from start to finish. Read on for the 10 little things that help make your bike tour the cycling vacation of a lifetime.

Exceptional Guides

They’re more than just experts in riding, they’re Trek Travel Certified mechanics and trained in delivering uncompromising service in ways you won’t believe. Think of them as your personal concierge, there to provide what you need before you even know you need it.

Guaranteed to run

Trips that are marked guaranteed are just that—guaranteed to run. If you’re going, we’re going. For trips of one or two guests, pay a small trip fee of $500 per person for two guests or $1000 for one guest, which ensures your preferred trip date will run.

Bike fit

Whether it’s the all-new, smooth and race-ready Trek Domane with electronic shifting and disc brakes or the fan-favorite Trek Electric-Assist Verve+, you can be sure your bike fit will be dialed before the first ride.

Free Wifi

Sometimes part of vacation is going off the grid, but in those moments when you want to plug back in it should be easy and hassle free. That’s why we take care of wifi for every guest in each hotel we visit.

Trek Bike Discount and a Digital Photo Album

Once you return home, continue your cycling journey with a new Trek bike and relive your favorite moments with a trip-specific digital photo album.

Pedals

We all know packing for a vacation can burst the seams on your favorite piece of luggage, but now you can lighten the load. Shimano R540 road pedals or Shimano M520 mountain pedals are included on every trip, so go ahead and leave yours at home.

Safety First

Did you know that daytime lights can reduce the risk of accidents by up to 50%? That’s why we include a Bontrager Ion head light and the Flare daytime tail-light on all our bikes and all our trips, so you can enjoy the scenery without the worry.

Jerseys

Look sharp on and off the bike. With most trips, you’ll receive a complimentary Trek Travel jersey perfect for storing snacks and meant to keep you comfortable no matter the terrain.

Advanced and Pre-loaded Routes

Whether you’re looking to really put in the miles or to go on a more leisurely spin, each day’s routes will be pre-loaded onto your Garmin so you never have to wonder, “Was that my turn back there?” Or if you prefer to bring your own device we’ve teamed with RideWithGPS to provide downloadable GPS routes ahead of time for all our trips so you can get the lay of the land before you even leave.

Team Access

As the official partner of Lidl-Trek, our trips are the best the industry has to offer, with VIP access and exclusive viewing spots. Watch the big attacks, meet the pros and drink in the drama. TV just can’t capture the electricity of a race. Luckily, that’s what we’re here for.

Year in Review: Top 9 Moments of 2019

“2019 has been a year of great new destinations, accomplishments, and more.”
-Tania, Trek Travel President

As we look back on all the adventures in 2019, there are a couple wonderful moments that really stand out in our company’s memory.

1. Launch of online booking

Now guests can reserve a trip when it is most convenient for their schedule. Our trip consultants are still available to answer any questions and offer advice, but if you want to snag the last spot on a popular trip, you can do that day or night.

2. A wedding in Tuscany

We were honored to be a part of this bike-loving couple’s big day! After riding in their bridal themed jerseys (yes, they make wedding dress and tuxedo jerseys), they celebrated with an intimate group of friends and family.

3. Safety upgrades with WaveCel

One of our unbelievable guests crossed the country this year on a mission to do good. After losing his wife in 2018 to complications from Crohn’s Colitis Disease, this guest dedicated his trip across the country to her – and raised nearly $70,000 for the Crohn’s Colitis National Foundation.
