A Typical Day
at Bike America Tours
Our cross-country tour is a camping tour! You will need a good tent, sleeping bag and mattress pad. A few campsites will be "primitive" and showers might not be available every night. If you occasionally choose to stay in a hotel we will gladly transport you to and from however, you will be responsible for the cost of the room.
Daily aspects of the "Bike America" cross country tour are minimally structured so that a rider can go at her/his pace. Each morning the riders will be awakened at 6:00am to a continental breakfast of bagels, fruit, muffins, cereal ,coffee, cocoa, tea and juice. French toast, eggs and bacon will be a surprise breakfast when the crew gets inspired.
After breakfast and the loading of gear, David Blair will go over announcements and discuss the day's itinerary, including terrain and mileage. The riders leave the campsight between 7:00 and 8:00am.
One support vehicle will be on the road at all times during the day. It carries water, repair items, minor first aid supplies, a cellular phone and a CB. We want your tour to be an enjoyable experience. All riders are encouraged to use the support vehicle for transportation when necessary.
Riders are responsible for providing their own lunch. We request that you let the support crew know of your intentions so that we may keep track of everyone's location.
Most riders arrive at the campground between 2:00 and 6:00pm. Supper is served between 6:00 and 7:00pm. Long daylight hours give everyone the opportunity to set up their tent, shower, write letters, read and explore the surrounding area. Most riders are amazed at how much they can eat after a full day of biking!
You won't have any trouble sleeping. The day ends at sunset, with the riders retiring to a well deserved sleep after a full day of biking.
