Appalachian Bike Tour Overview

A combination of some of the finest cycling in the USA with a historical and gastronomical focus that provides for a wonderfully immersive travel experience.

Split over two distinct stages our route takes us through ten US States from Bethel, Maine to Cherokee, North Carolina with the Appalachian Trail providing our thematic context. Starting with the rural and rustic splendour of Maine we search out the road less travelled as we head south. Our journey explores the States of New England, skirts around NYC before we complete the first stage in the historic town of Gettysburg.

The Civil War provides an interesting historical angle as we travel close to some of the most significant Battlefields. The scenery of the ride is enhanced by the numerous National Parks we cycle through and the hillier second stage can lay claim to taking us on two of the best bike routes in the USA – Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This tour will be run in collaboration with our friends at Cycle of Life Adventures and is a wonderful addition to our tour Epic Tours collection.
