Fairfield County 25 Miler!! A new ride this year to and from the Westport Train Station. A little more challenging than our Bike & Boat Tour, it meanders along the exquisite Westport/Southport shoreline before turning inland along the quiet country roads of Fairfield. Costs for the tour are $75.00 per person ($105 if we provide the bike and helmet). As with our Bike & Boat Tour, please ask about our couples' special. We recommend a start time of 9 AM but can customize the start to meet your needs.
If your party is feeling especially frisky, we have a challenging Fairfield County 40 Miler that requires your own road bike & helmet. We can even arrange lunch along the way...call for details.
Cyclists wishing to tour other areas of Connecticut will be by special request (we have easy, moderate and challenging routes from Essex, Fairfield, New Haven and other shoreline locations). The hourly cost of the coach is $50.00, with a ride time minimum of 2 hours. Maximum ride time??? Heck, we'll go all day!!
