Lookin for good bike tours that are semi easy affordable and for families with teens in america anyone know any good ones?

Bike tours that are family teen friendly


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.
