My wife and I have been riding a tandem this year and are thinking of trying a short/medium length camping tour this summer or fall. Unless one uses a trailer a tandem doesn't have a lot of space for carrying gear. So a supported tour would be ideal. Adventure Cycling has "van-supported" tours where the group collectively is responsible for their own meals and gear, but AC provides a van to carry all the luggage from one evening's location to the next.
This would seem ideal except for one thing. She has some food alergies so she eats entirely gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free. This rules out most shared meals and shared cooking equipment. We can always ship food, small pots, and even a backpacking stove with our gear, but much of the cost of tours like theirs seems to be in a communal food budget. We'd be paying for food we wouldn't share.
I can contact AC about a special arrangement. But I'm wondering if there are alternatives. One possibility is that local cycling clubs might hold supported tours with a different food arrangement. They might be more flexible than a for-profit company.
Any suggestions? Do any of you know of such clubs here in the Northeast?
BTW, I did see the suggestion a day or so ago about using a courier service to shuttle gear for a trip in Maine. Good idea. However it doesn't provide the pre-trip route planning or during-trip emergency support one might expect in an organized tour.
