Title: Reviews of Southern Tier tours
Post by: rmball28 on August 17, 2020, 09:46:07 pm
I am considering taking the Adventure Cycling Southern tier van supported tour next year.  I have been looking for unbiased reviews on the internet without much success.  Can anyone give me suggestions on where to look?    Do you have any insights on adventure cycling tours in general?

I'm riding the New Orleans to St. Augustine stretch in September and can give you some feedback when I finish. For now, check out the reviews on the ACA website.

Thanks for the information folks.  I have looked on CGOAB and Bikeforums but I am more interested in information on the long term van supported tour thing.  With the exception of one RAGBRAI I have always toured independently fully loaded.  I very much enjoy (and miss) riding weekends with my local cycle club so I am hoping for a similar experience on a van supported tour.
