I want to take some time off work (not much, just like a week or so) and ride a lot.
I've looked at several websites that offer tour trip packages and although it all seems interesting, it is not quite what I'm looking for.
I'm 27 and ride a road bike on fast group rides 5 times/week. While I would enjoy travelling long distances and seeing cool things, I also want to ride fast. A training camp would be nice. Or a nice fast paced "tour" on road bikes would also be great.
I'd suggest something like PAC tour. Also, the LD riding group does more fast riding type stuff, I'd check with them. There are also the cross state rides...BRAT, BRAG, Cycle NC, Raggbrai (sp) etc. that are daily site to site camping with someone moving your bags.
These people run a lot of supported tours that are also billed as races for amateurs: http://www.tourdafrique.com/tours You can join on for sections that are about one week long. Some of the routes look pretty nice.
Under that heading, you'll see links for the Canadian Death Race, PacTour, Semaine Federale (you'd have to look up the one for the current year), Tour d'Afrique (and of course, all their variations) .... and several others.
IF SCJ SE, Surly LHT, BikeFriday NWT, Cannondale M300, Raleigh 700
When you go on an event such as the Bike Tour of Colorado, you can ride as fast as you want/can.
I highly recommend Cycle Oregon. Too late this year as it's sold out, but keep it in mind for next year. They usually offer terrific routes, and the ammenities are many. The downside is the cost. It ain't cheap for a supported camping tour.
