We select trip accommodations based on decades of experience and intimate familiarity with our destinations. We strive to make sure your lodging experience is one akin to being welcomed into a home away from home instead of a sterile hotel. Unless noted otherwise, all RAID departures include double-occupancy lodging for each night of the trip, from arrival to departure. Single-occupancy lodging is available for a small upcharge.
When possible, we will provide transfers from destination airport to departure airport, but in those locations where it’s easier for our guests to self-transfer, we will provide all of the options to consider when making your transportation plans. In the same vein as our lodging, any transfers during the trip are designed to be as comfortable and as rapid as possible, and are, of course, included.
All trips include full SAG support, including mechanical and nutritional assistance. We offer a variety of nutritional/hydration products on rides including popular nutrition brands, as well as homemade snacks. We’re happy to assist with any dietary needs/restrictions you may have. If for whatever reason you cannot complete the day’s route, we’re happy to transport you to our destination in our SAG vehicle.
Bicycles are not included on RAID departures. However, our professional mechanics are more than happy to assemble and adjust your bike on arrival at the destination. Flying with your bike in a standard bike case/bag is reliable, though shipping via FedEx/UPS is also an option except for international departures. In the event that you do not wish to travel with your bike, we’re happy to arrange and facilitate a bike hire at the destination for the duration of the trip.
Most meals are included in RAID departures, with individual dining instances strategically placed throughout the trip with plenty of options. Alcohol is not included in trip pricing, but a cold beer is always waiting at the end of the day!
