Lookin for good bike tours that are semi easy affordable and for families with teens in america anyone know any good ones?
Sigh... Here we go again. Define "affordable". $100 or $1,000? Question also incomplete in these areas. 1) Length of tour? Looking for something that last just a day or two - or a tour that might last months? 2) All inclusive or not? With some tours, once the up-front fee is paid, everything is covered...meals, motels, campsite fees, etc. 3) Starting and ending where? Some bike tours will arrive back at the starting point. Others may go coast-to-coast. 4) Condition of riders? In other words...are your teen riders capable of days in the saddle lasting anywhere from 40 to 80 miles? 5) Does the tour supply a support vehicle in case of mechanical failure or a rider is incapable of completing that day's journey? One website that immediately comes to mind is Bubba's Pampered Pedalers. Here's a link to their schedule which also includes some other rides. http://www.bubbaspamperedpedalers.com/schedule If it were me with a family...I'd plan my own low cost & relatively SHORT excursion. I wouldn't make it anything more than 2 to 3 days. There's plenty of "rails-to-trails" bike paths across America. I feel fortunate living in the Midwest close to Missouri's Katy Trail. https://bikekatytrail.com/ You'd have a choice of either camping out or staying in a Bed & Breakfast; which can be quite expensive. You can travel at your own pace & not worry about keeping up with more experienced riders. There's towns and rest stops usually every 10 to 15 miles along the route. Plus with a route such as the Katy Trail, MO. state highway 94 runs almost parallel to it from Jefferson City to St. Louis. This way you could have another family member in a "support vehicle" meet you at various points along the route supplying snacks and/or even complete meals. Wanna know how I initially found out so much about it? FROM A BOOK! https://bikekatytrail.com/books.aspx And also from GOOGLE. I've been on it several times - ranging anywhere from a simple one day outing to completing the journey from one end to the other.

Take $1,500 of that 2 to 3 K and get yourself a good touring bike. https://salsacycles.com/bikes/marrakesh/marrakesh_deore_drop_bar
Can you explain what you mean by "semi easy affordable" please. It's an extremely vague phrase.
