If I am traveling alone will the price change?
New for 2012 all room bookings means that your reserved room is your room for the duration of your stay. You will only share a room with a guest that you are traveling with. This does mean that prices will vary slightly if you travel alone vs traveling with a partner. Single occupancy rates are between €60-€70 and €80-€95 for double occupancy.
Do I need to be a rider to do one of your bicycle tours?
With the new format that allows you to pick and choose your options you most certainly do not have to be a rider. There are plenty of things that non-riders can do in the area including many city visits, museums, shopping etc.
Why are your bicycle tours priced in euros?
All accommodation and travel fees are priced in euros, so by pricing our tours in euros it saves us from altering our cycling tour fees based on drastic currency fluctuations. We do offer the option to pay in USD, if you are interested in this option just contact us to find out all the details and the conversion rate.
How much can I expect to be riding on a cycling tour?
Our two fully supported rides will be approximately 60km and 90km. Other guided rides will vary in distance and speed, and will focus heavily on the Flemish Ardennes.
Where can I find information about other tours offered?
All of our available tours are listed on the Tour page. We are currently working on several other tour ideas, you can expect to find those details here once they become available. If there is a specific tour that you are looking for, we are always up for suggestions if we aren’t already working on it. We also offer personalized tours, check out the Tour page for more information.
Is dinner included every evening?
Unless otherwise stated, dinner are not included. This gives you the option to choose from numerous dining options. In the past most guests often choose to dine together even when given a “free choice” evening, so chances are you’ll never dine alone. Plus who says you have to eat local cuisine every night in Belgium? If Chinees take out makes you happy then have that!
We are more than happy to make dining suggestions and reservations for you during your stay, plus an evening shuttle to and from the town center means you can have an extra drink… or two. Cheers!
How fast are your rides on your cycling tours?
Generally our rides are around 28kph average (17.5mph). Each ride can be adapted to go slower or faster if the group desires, but our tours are designed for more of a vacation / leisure time, rather than a fast paced group ride. If you wish to get in the speed and the distance please consider contacting us about arranging a training camp for yourself and a group of friends you would like to train with. We can arrange the camp around a specific race or event to allow both the training you would like and the sightseeing you desire.
Do you offer any returning guests discounts
For a full format tour we are available to offer up a 10% discount on the tour price for a 2nd time guest, and a 15% discount for a 3rd time guest. Contact us for discounted rates for returning guests joining us on our new 2012 Spring Classics format.
Do you offer any group discounts?
YES! We offer groups looking to book on bicycle tours a discount. The minimum group size is 4 and from there we offer varying levels of discount depending on the group size and the availablity of the tour. Contact us and we can discuss what we can do for your group.
How are your tours less expensive than others?
Our tours are less expensive because we live in Europe and know where to get the best deals on things. We also host many of our tours through our cycling guest house, The ChainStay, which saves us from passing on the cost of hotels (and lots of transfer time) onto our guests. We NEVER sacrafice quality for cost on our cycling tours and always provide a high level of service on all of our tours. Read what we have to offer on our bicycle tours and compare that to another competitor and we are sure you will find our tours the best value for money.
