Riding: Average Daily Mileage: 15 – 35 miles / 24 – 56 kilometers | Average Daily Elevation: Up to 750 feet / 228 meters | Average Riding Time: 1 – 2 Hours

My fitness and experience: I’m relatively fit and am comfortable with hills that are less than half a mile in length. I want to ride on my vacation, but not every day. I enjoy slight inclines but like it to be mostly flat. I also don’t mind hopping in the support van when I’ve ridden enough.



Riding: Average Daily Mileage: 30 – 50 miles / 48 – 80 kilometers | Average Daily Elevation: Up to 2,000 feet / 600 meters | Average Riding Time: 2 – 3 Hours

My fitness and experience: I ride my bike on a regular basis either for fitness, to commute to work, or just for fun. I enjoy an active lifestyle with an occasional physical challenge.



Riding: Average Daily Mileage: 45 – 70 miles / 72 – 112 kilometers | Average Daily Elevation: Up to 7,000 feet / 2,130 meters | Average Riding Time: 4 Hours

My fitness and experience: Fitness is central to my life. I ride my bike regularly on a weekly basis and am comfortable with rides of 3-4 hours or more at a relatively strong pace. I enjoy all terrain, with hills and some moderate mountain passes. I like getting some speed on moderate descents.



Riding: Average Daily Mileage: 60 – 110 miles / 96 – 177 kilometers | Average Daily Elevation: Up to 13,000 feet / 3,960 meters | Average Riding Time: 5+ Hours

My fitness and experience: I ride my bike an average of 150+km per week and enjoy a fast pace for an extended period of time. I love to train, improve, and maybe even race my friends. I enjoy all terrain, with hills and big mountain passes. Steep technical descents are fun, and I enjoy a challenge.
