It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are... you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.
~ Ernest Hemingway
Leisurely Cycling Tours of the Connecticut Shoreline
Bicycles are a non-evasive, green and very healthy way to get into and out of the "nooks and crannies" of Connecticut. Our bicycle tours are leisurely paced guided rides along gently rolling hills that are made easy to navigate thanks to our 24 speed "comfort bikes"...or, if you've brought it along, ride your own. Either way, join us on our popular shoreline bicycle and boat ride or, if your visit to Connecticut takes you away from the shore, we can design a guided ride that will take you along rolling country roads past scenic villages, forests and farms, anywhere in the state.
From Westport to West Hartford and beyond, we provide the guides, refreshments and routes...we'll even provide the bikes and helmets if needed...you provide the energy! All our rides are along bike friendly roads, well marked with excellent lines of sight.
Sachem's Head Harbor
We start our popular Connecticut Shoreline Bicycle and Boat Tour from the Guilford Green, just 30 minutes from downtown New Haven, CT, 45 minute from New London and less than one hour from The Mohengan Sun Casino in Uncascille, CT.
If you find yourself at one of the numerous Bed & Breakfasts in the area, we can design a ride from your location and save the gas. For a complete list of B & B's in Connecticut go to www.bedandbreakfast.com/connecticut.html
