The rest days are scheduled at points of cultural, scenic, or recreational interest, usually after several days of riding. It is a chance to relax and enjoy the culture or ride and explore new scenic locations. You are free to explore towns and cities on your own. We also provide you with riding routes, if you choose to ride that day.
The riders have different skill levels. Some have been riding for years and are highly skilled, others have been riding for only a few years and ride at a more relaxed pace. You can always ride at your own pace! Your comfort is very important to us and many riders have been able to hone their skills by riding with our guides who are always available to give pointers.
IMTBike will custom-design a route to your specifications and desires with a minimum of 10 tour members.
