About Erickson

We are a team of dedicated and experienced cycling enthusiasts who enjoy nothing better than sharing with friends an energetic ride along an outstanding route. Our tours are designed for intermediate and experienced cyclists, with route options each day which allow for as much or little challenge as desired. While the cycling is a joy in itself, we also embrace the sightseeing, cafés, and pastry shops, as well as the comforts of our hotel with the same gusto. Our tours are fully supported by our own van, driver, and mechanic. We are willing and able to handle luggage transport, bicycle problems, and weary cyclists. And of course, our able and enthusiastic selves (Glenn, Nancy, Jim, Marcia, Tim, Kyle, Peter, or Galen) will be in the saddle and on the road each day of the trip.

Accommodations

A comfortable place to relax, refuel, and prepare for local sightseeing and for the next day’s ride is as important as the cycling itself. We personally select smaller inns which reflect the charm and uniqueness of each region. We insure with each innkeeper that our needs as a cycling group are met: secure overnight storage for our bikes and hearty breakfasts and dinners that showcase the local cuisine. These will be primarily 2-4 star hotels with each room appointed with its own bath/shower and WC.

Group Size

Our groups are limited in size to 20 riders — small enough so that we can stay in the smaller, more personable inns, yet large enough to broaden one’s circle of cycling companions.
