Our mission is to provide our guests with an unforgettable experience that they can’t get any where else in the world. We do this by providing over-the-top customer service, extensive knowledge of endurance sports and most importantly an environment that fosters relationships through riding bikes, enjoying great food and exploring new places. Our goal is to push the boundaries of what most riders think of when they think of a “typical cycling trip” and WOW our guests. We’re passionate about what we do.
Based in Missoula, The Cycling House (“TCH”) uniquely brings that special Montana spirit into every trip – throughout the US and Europe. We are highly selective of everyone who works here as we only bring on staff members who share our values and passions in life. This enables us to build and preserve unmatched teamwork and culture that is essential for having the types of top-notch experiences that our clients have come to expect.
All of our guides are accomplished athletes who equally excel in their care and concern for each and every client. And having a dedicated in-house chef assures consistency in providing freshly prepared, delicious food every day (more about our food below). The “we take care of everything” approach – from the moment our guests arrive on their trip – empowers our riders to be totally “selfish” for a whole week where they can focus on riding, exploring, learning and soaking up the experience that we’ve delivered for 12 years. In every one of our trips, you hone your cycling and triathlon skills, discover how to break through your current limits, and derive a memorable life-enhancing experience that endures long after the camp is over.
We started the Cycling House in 2005 to provide cyclists and triathletes a home away from home in which to ride in the sunshine during the winter months. Our trips are for folks who are passionate about riding bikes (and swimming and running) and are looking for a great week of putting on base miles coupled with a vacation as well. You don’t have to be an aspiring pro rider to come ride with us. We encourage all ability levels to contact us to find the best trip for them. After years of riding through Montana winters in pursuit of our professional racing careers we knew first-hand how cold and training-prohibitive the winters can be in colder climates and we wanted to give fellow endurance athletes the opportunity to ride in warmth and sunshine for a few days. We found Tucson, Arizona to be head and shoulders above the rest of country because of its superb winter weather, beautiful landscape, strong outdoor culture, and incredible training rides like Mount Lemmon. Since then we’ve expanded our offerings to include new locations around the globe that we feel will provide riders with the same top-notch experience that we started with in Tucson. We are now into our 12th season! We’ve hosted hundreds of cyclists, triathletes or just adventure riders and delivered our experience across the globe. We look forward to riding with you soon!
Real Food, Made Fresh
For us, the food that we provide at camp is equally as important as great day on the bike. At the camps where we cook all of the meals, we strive to offer seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Our goal is to support the local community, wherever we are in the world and that means working with the folks that source the local and regional ingredients. This take a little bit more time and work on our end us but it’s worth it when it’s time to enjoy a great meal after a day on the bike. We make food that is made specifically for endurance athletes which means we focus on healthy, lean proteins, lots of green leafy and root veggies and plenty of tasty side dishes. Our chefs make dishes that they’ve been inspired with from around the world so each meal will be diverse, interesting and above all else, delicious! We all eat together, family style at one big table. We’ve always enjoyed our meals this way and it’s had a profound impact on our camps over the years. On all of our trips you can count on us covering all the meals during your stay with us (even if we go out to eat). Some locations we end up going out to eat a little more so check out each trip page for details. Drop us a line and we can send an example of our camp menu.
