Details About the Tour...

*More details are being released everyday! Keep checking back for more information about tour specifics* 

Lodging

  • We will take care of all the reservations and booking for the entire trip. All rooms are booked for double occupancy and you will be placed with a roommate for the entirety of the trip. If you have a preferred roommate, please specify on your registration.
  • Your included lodging begins in Calais ME. After you fly into the Airport, a shuttle will take you to our meeting place and first overnight location. All 62 nights of lodging are covered in the cost of the tour. 
  • We will be staying at a mixture of hotels, motels and bed & breakfasts. You will find there are some desolate areas as we travel through the country. In many places there may only be one option for lodging. We will always choose the best available option the area has to offer.

Food

  • All breakfasts are included in this tour. Many of the overnight locations offer breakfast on site but not all are included. For those mornings we will provide a continental style breakfast in house. We will provide things like: coffee, cereal, bagels, fresh fruit, breakfast bars, pastries etc. We will try to switch things up frequently and offer local favorites from along the way. Filling out your preference sheet during registration will help us ensure we have a good variety that include your favorites.
  • All Dinners are also included in this tour! There are many days on the road you will not find adequate food options, that's where we come in. Instead of eating gas station hot dogs or a sandwich that's been smashed in your back jersey pocket all day, we will be there to provide nutritious options along the route. A variety of options will be provided on a daily basis. Again, completing your preference sheet will ensure we have your favorites. 
  • Snacks and Drinks are provided at the SAG stops along the way. During the day we are on the road with you to make sure you have everything you need. Strategically placed along the route, full SAG stops will include fresh water, soft drinks and light snacks. Completing your preference sheet will help us have exactly what you need to get you through the day.
  • We work very hard to ensure those with food allergies and/or special dietary needs will be supported given specific attention during shopping and meal prep.

Support & Gear

  • Each evening, you will be given a printed copy of the next days ride. This includes an overall map and turn-by-turn directions. We will discuss each days route in greater detail and answer any questions or concerns anyone may have. A digital file can be provided ahead of time upon request for Garmin users. All attractions, gas stations, restrooms, SAG stops etc will be included on your route sheets - no searching or wondering what to expect.
  • SAG stops are strategically placed throughout the route each day. We will have two different types of stops, "check-in" stops or "full SAG" stops. Check-In's will be a quick stop where we can verify you are safe and on route while you refill your water bottles. A full SAG stop will include a seating area with shade, water, soft drinks, snacks or lunch. First aid always available at every stops.
  • The ultimate "mental insurance policy" on your cross country tour - this is a van supported tour! We want you to ride every inch but if you are unable to ride for whatever reason, rest assured knowing that you are never left stranded.

What's NOT Included

  • Your travel expenses to and from the tour. All arrangements to the starting location and from the ending location must be made outside the tour.
  • Lunches
  • No drama llama included

Frequently Asked Q's...

How do I take care of laundry during the trip?

  • During this tour, you will have ample opportunity to get your laundry done, as many of the overnight locations we stay at will have "coin laundry". We will have that information ahead of time and coordinate with the group.

What should I do about shipping my bike?

  • Most people find it easiest to ship their bicycle ahead of time and have it built and ready to ride when you land at the starting point. Your bicycle can be shipped to a local bike shop in Seattle, Washington for assembly.  
  • At this time, we are in contact with several local bike shops in the Seattle, Washington and Portland, Maine areas and are negotiating the best deal possible. We will update with specific information when we have finalized details. 

Can I have a friend or relative join us on the tour for a few days?

  • Of course! We ask that all preparations for visits be approved by the A-Team and made well in advance before their arrival.
  • There may be additional costs - all rooming and travel accommodations for guests must be made separate from the tour.

What if I have mechanical issues along the way?

  • When you ride with Alpaca Adventure Tours you are never left stranded on the road. We have a 25+ year professional mechanic that travels along with us for more serious issues. However, we recommend that all participants have a basic knowledge of bicycle mechanics (ie: inflate tires, how to change a flat, put a chain back on, bike safety).
