The Newbie: Bicycle Touring 101

Are you a newbie to cycling or just to touring by bicycle? Our recommended first-time bike tours––a kind of bicycle touring "101"––are just what you need!

Enjoy quiet roads along flat and rolling terrain zigzagging through vineyards, olive groves, and farmland.

For those who just want to take it easy.
