Next year I'm going to do a tour of 2 to 3 weeks. I'm undecided about where and when and weather to use a touring company or just go off on my own. I'm kind of leaning to ride to Iowa and do RAGBRAI as I did it this year and would love to do it again.
But in case I don't, the question is, should I do a guided tour for my first tour, or should I strike out on my own?
Also does anyone have any recommendations on a touring group/guide around the western US?
I'm not worried about mileage as I do a lot of centuries and double centuries.
