Looking for something customized just for your crew?
We’d love to help you organize a trip that’s built specifically around your wants and needs.
Please reach out to us and share as much information as possible about what you have in mind, what time of year, where you’d like to go, etc. We look forward to hearing from you!
Always travel with your pedals, shoes and one jersey and pair of shorts in your carry on bag. Regardless of whether or not you are renting or bringing your own bike this will ensure that you have the essentials to ride in case your luggage or bike are delayed.
Check out time varies from trip to trip. Plan on leaving between 9am-11am on the last day listed for the trip.
Yes, all the meals are covered by us. Each location is slightly different but in general, most all of the meals will be freshly prepared food by our in house chef. Other times we’ll dine out at local restaurants. Please see each specific trip page for food details.
Definitely. Our trips our fully supported so nobody has to be worried about being left out alone. Typically we’ll have 1-2 vans out on the road, and anywhere from 2-4 guides on the road at all times. If you feel like calling it a day you can always hitch a ride with the support vehicle.
Most of our trips are around 15 riders. This is a great, intimate size that still allows for group diversity. The exceptions are our summer Montana trips (Tour de Montana, Glacier to Yellowstone, and Glacier Loop). These trips will range in number between 20-30 riders.
Probably! Our chefs cook for all sorts of athletes with various likes, dislikes, and allergies. Whether you are allergic to gluten or dislike peanut butter, accommodating you won’t be a problem. Just check in with us before camp so we can dial everything in for you.
Yes, we organize trips for a variety of cycling and triathlon groups. Contact us here for details.
Our training camps are for all kinds of athletes, and you don’t have to be an elite road-racer to enjoy our camps, or benefit from them. That said, if you have doubts about which camp you’d feel most comfortable in, we’d love to talk to you! Different camps do work better for different riders. We can help you pick out the camp that will suit you best.
While “Rider Levels” aren’t exact science…we’ve developed a simple guide to help you determine the best match for your current ability/fitness level. If in doubt, please give us a call! We’d love to chat: 406-219-1318.
For Tucson, Solvang, Tour de Montana, Glacier to Yellowstone and Glacier Loop we have our own fleet of Look 765 carbon road bikes. Here is a link to our rental bike page. There are pros and cons to both. Bringing your own bike means that you know it will fit you perfectly and it’s what you’re use to. That said, traveling through the airport with a bike can be a pain, not to mention expensive. If you do want to rent a bike from us, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you have a bike that’s the correct size. A rental bike is likely going to be a little bit different geometry from what you are used to so it might feel slightly weird at first. Most riders get use to a new bike very quickly. Renting makes travel easy because you get to travel light, show up, and ride! Click here for more information on our rental bikes or to place your reservation. We use an online service called Bike Flights. This is a great, inexpensive and easy way to ship your bike ahead of time. An important note if you ship your bike ahead of time is that you’ll be without your bike for about a week before and after your trip.
We suggest booking your tickets within 90 days of your trip departure date and no later than 4 weeks prior to your trip departure. This allows for ample trip planning on your end and enough time to get your trip coordinator your travel plans.
Most of the time, beer and wine is not included in your trip rate. Unless the specific trip page states otherwise, plan on buying your own booze :)
A $500 deposit is due at the time of booking. The balance is due at 90 days prior to the start of the trip. This includes any incidentals, such as bike or gear rentals, or single room supplements.
Our cancellation policy can be found here.
We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance. The Cycling House has partnered with TravelGuard to offer a plan which could cover you in case of incident, or you could purchase a policy of your choosing. TravelGuard’s customer service number is 800-826-1300, and our ID number is 315635.
If you’re fully satisfied with the service and performance of our staff then a gratuity is greatly appreciated. An industry standard for gratuity is around 10% of the total trip costs and is to be divided out to the entire trip staff. Rider’s typically give gratuity to the camp director and the director then divides that amongst the staff. Also, gratuity can be added to your final bill post camp.
