    Bike tour centuries

    Are there any bike tour companies that offer 100 mile days for an entire week? Most seem to be 40-50 miles...am I the only one who wants more? Thanks!

    I am trying just that solo in 5 weeks: 7 days, 660 miles, but I am only 63% expecting to succeed.

    There are also fast cross country tours that do 100 mile days for 33 days.

    You can also ride the whole Tour of California route, but it's super expensive: 2014 Tour of California | Carmichael Training Systems

    I think there is a similar one in Colorado.

    There is, the US Pro Cycling Challenge. It is very expensive, but it's more than a typical bike tour. It's kinda like fantasy camp for Walter Mitty bike racers. You ride the entire course ahead of the race, with a small headstart, and you either stay ahead or get pulled.

    You get pro tour level support, with soigneurs, coaches, and mechanics with Pro Tour experience.

    You stay and eat with the racers, and are treated as the 17th team in the race. You get unprecedented access to the race behind the curtains which is pretty cool. But you pay a lot for the privilege.

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
