Our Team

staff-2016-wacky-sm

We feel that one of the key factors for a successful bicycle vacation are the guides who accompany our guests on each tour. The destinations often speak for themselves in terms of beauty, but the scenery alone is not all that is necessary to have an incredible experience. Our guides are the best in the business with the most experience and working knowledge of the area. Their commitment, personalities and love of the special places we visit leave our guests enriched in the culture, history and geology of the lands encountered. Our Rim Tours Veteran's Club grows larger every year with riders from all over the world who just can't get enough.

Maybe you will be next to join the ranks...
