Pro Rides

Pro Rides: Ireland's West Coast, French Alps, French Provence, Spain's Costa Brava, Spain Mallorca.
 
Ride up to an optional century (100 miles) in a day with our Pro Ride series.  Here we focus on the ride, and build up our daily mileage using the most stunningly scenic routes available and we frequently throw in some infamous challenges along the way for good measure.  In Costa Brava, Spain this means Rocacorba & Els Angels midweek and then a ride across the border into France for a beer and early dinner.  In Provence, France this means the mighty Mount Ventoux following a week of zipping around the hilltop villages through vineyards and olive groves.  We include 5 nights B&B in excellent clean & comfortable hotels and inns (2 & 3 star), 5 lunches (2 courses) and 5 dinners (3 courses), full support.

We require a minimum group size of 12 participants for all our Pro-Rides.  
You will have one guide who will lead the group and a support vehicle which will bring up the rear.  
We supply water, healthy snacks (bananas, nuts, dried fruit) and have a supply of tubes, tyres and cables for sale (for those who have brought their own bikes).
While we encourage folks on Pro Tours to bring their own saddles and helmets, we can supply these also.
We also encourage folks to bring their own bikes but we also can supply the latest fully carbon bikes (such as Cannondale SuperSix with full Schimano 105 components, or similar) from $200 extra per tour.  If bringing your own bike we strongly encourage that it is fully serviced before shipping, paying particular attention to brake blocks & cables and tyre condition.
We include a single group transfer on the first day and a single group transfer on the final day.  Indiviudual transfers can be arranged at extra cost.
 
Rating: Moderate - Advanced 
Minimum 12 participants
Our Pro Ride destinations include Ireland's West Coast, French Alps, French Provence, Spain Mallorca and Spain's Costa Brava"

Ideally suited to bike clubs and groups of bikers these trips are aimed at those who have no trouble riding 70-80km daily, encountering the occasional significant climb with a typical 900-1200 ft elevation.  Average daily biking will vary; on days with tough climbs we recommend keeping it to below 80km while on less challenging days we can manage 140-160km (a mile century).  We can tailor the rides for each group and adjust the itinerary slightly to accomplish them.  Where abilities differ dramatically (eg. the lead rider is averaging 30 minutes / 25km ahead of the slower riders then we will offer a 'leap frog' shuttle, or a head start at the beginning of the ride, in order to keep the group together.
