On tour, our daily routes include longer and shorter ride options. If you’re a dedicated cyclist but have chosen a more leisurely tour, our guides are happy to take you out for some extra miles. If you have your heart set on an itinerary with more advanced riding, you can rely on our support van to sweep the route—or use electric assist to quicken your pace.
We believe that cycling is for everyone, so our itineraries are designed to accommodate all types of riders—from cycling newcomers to avid riders and everyone in between.

Available on most DuVine tours, e-bikes provide an extra boost to your own pedal power, so you can ride longer distances, tackle tougher climbs, and maintain a faster pace. Electric assist is an excellent option if you’re traveling with friends or family and don’t ride at the same level, or if your heart is set on exploring a region with more challenging cycling. Learn more about how e-bikes can change the way you travel.
Travelers with companions who prefer not to cycle can still experience select destinations in DuVine style. On certain scheduled departures, non-riders can explore the best of the region off the bike as they shop, hike, discover local culture, or make the most of hotel pools and spas, then re-join the group for cocktails and dinner each evening. Since guides are focused on supporting cyclists during daily rides, alternate transportation may be required for non-riders. A limited number of non-rider-friendly tours are marked “Non-Rider Option.”
For other destinations or to create a private itinerary where non-riders can share in the same daily activities, lunches, and wine tastings as cyclists, contact our Trip Specialists.
