OVERVIEW

WHAT IS TOUR LIKE?

Life on tour is simple. Your job, as a cross country cyclist, is to enjoy your time on your bike and let us take care of the daily details. You will:

RIDE – We recommend you ride the bike you’ve trained on. It should be fitted specifically for you and have new tires, a new chain, be cleaned, lubed and ready to go! If your bike is over two years old, we recommend a complete overhaul with new cables, brake pads, tubes and tires.

On the first riding day of tour you will wear your new CrossRoads jersey. Each Friday during tour will be “jersey day” when the entire tour group rides out together in the morning wearing their tour jerseys. The last Friday of tour is the day you will dip your wheel in the Atlantic Ocean.

EAT – Breakfast is most often served at the hotel or a restaurant close to the hotel. Lunch is not included with tour except on the longer days when no services are available. Dinner is provided by (walkable) local restaurants or catered at the hotel. Dinner is not included the night before rest days or on rest days and four other nights during tour when our evening location begs you to discover a great spot to eat on your own.

Examples include:

Applebee’s
Chili’s Bar and Grill
Texas Roadhouse

Cracker Barrel
Outback Steakhouse
Ruby Tuesday

SLEEP – We like nice hotels and so do you! Each night you will sleep well in a business-class hotel. Either double or single room occupancy is available to you. In most cases we are able to match you with a roommate. If not, the cost of a single room will apply.

Examples include:

Drury Inn
Holiday Inn Express
Hilton Garden
Comfort Suites

Springhill Suites
Hampton Inn
Courtyard Marriott
La Quinta

Your luggage (two gear bags with luggage tags provided by CrossRoads) will be delivered to your room each day prior to your arrival at the hotel. When delivered, your room will be inspected by our Logistics Manager to be sure it is clean and ready for you.

SAG – Support and Gear are provided by our two SAG vehicles and our support truck. Each day, depending on the length of the riding day, between one and three SAGs are set up and ready for you. Power food and drinks, ice cold water, snacks, pastry, and fresh fruit help you refuel and enjoy your ride.
