This was my first time going on a cycling vacation – I had a very particular type of trip in mind, wanting to cycle very aggressively during the day, but also experience the best that Napa and Sonoma had to offer by night. I looked at many different companies, but most only offered a set of pre-arranged trips with fixed dates, fixed routes, and generally not a lot of options. Lifecycle was the polar opposite. In spite of booking less than a month before departure, they were able to craft a custom trip that gave me everything I wanted. They even acted as my concierge, arranging dinner reservations and massages. Each day I had multiple route options to choose from to get to my next destination, allowing me to do as much as 70 miles and 5000ft of climbing on one day, and less than 20 on another. Their team checked in on me daily either by email or text, and were always available to handle on-the-fly changes to the trip as was needed. I also appreciated that I was dealing with real cyclists who could give first-hand advice on routes and planning. In spite of travelling solo, I never felt alone. I would recommend them to anyone.
We’d go around the world with Lifecycle if they offered it. Our first trip was a wonderful week in Napa/Sonoma in July 2013. The second we brought friends along for a Tour of Tuscany in July 2015. The first trip was perfect and this was even better. Their attention to detail, the route maps along with all the recommendations for sights, eating, lodging, and side excursions, let us further tailor an already customized trip. And our guide, Ingo, made a great vacation even more perfect. Already looking forward to whatever corner of the world Lifecycle tackles next!

Lifecycle Adventures did a great job and I highly recommend them. Their route planning was thorough and tailored to our preferences, and the Willamette Valley was a sheer delight. They moved quickly to secure the lodging we wanted when we planned the trip. Our guide Jeff Huffman was engaging, knowledgeable and quickly available for any immediate support we needed. The bikes were good, and outfitted as we had requested. One of the best parts of Lifecycle’s customized tours vs organized tours is the flexibility — if you want to sleep in, stop to pick cherries, or visit an extra winery…you just do it! A great vacation for our whole family of 5 adults.

Amazing and wonderful cycling tour in Oregon with Lifecycle Adventures. Our guide, Josh, made our trip rating excellent with his very personal attention to our desire for a unique experience. The area manager, Jeffery, maintained close contact with us before, during, and after our tour. These two gentlemen, along with several others within the company, were right on point with all the information and advice they provided. We would definitely recommend them all to close friends or family, and plan to return to many more areas for riding with their guidance!
Lifecycle Adventures designed an epic cycling trip for my honeymoon through Napa and Sonoma. The company was top notch from the planning stage through the time we were dropped off at our hotel at the end of the trip. The company listened to what I was interested in riding and Lifecycle Adventures designed the trip perfectly. I will absolutely use this company on future cycling trips.
The maps were PERFECT and the accommodations were just as delightful. The scenery was gorgeous and we enjoyed riding without a guide. If we had any questions during the trip, we had 24/7 access for help from the company!!!! The trip was designed so well we never had any questions.
We rented bikes provided by Lifecycle Adventures and the Trek bikes were in perfect condition and rode great!!
Lifecycle Adventures was an outstanding choice for our cycling adventure and honeymoon!!!
From start to finish our trip was perfect. Laura and her team helped to build a great plan and where always there to answer our questions and provide advice and guidance on places we should stay and visit and routes we should bike. We were met by our guide on time and provided with everything we needed to start our trip. It was a breeze moving from place to place and our luggage was always ready and waiting at our next stop. Accommodations at both Luxe in Calistoga and Madrona Manor in Healdsburg where great. At Luxe, hosts Chris and Brent were exceptional and the atmosphere was wonderful.
Would do this trip again in a heartbeat!
We had such a great time, and really recommend LifeCycle Adventures… they did everything they said they would do, and more. I really feel they went above and beyond. They met us at our hotel, we talked the entire way to the start, fit us, were really patient with all our questions, and even followed us down to the first town to check on us.
They and their drivers really know Italy and the life, so we didn’t feel like pure tourists, but we also did all the tourist and local things that were of interest. When we couldn’t do a full day’s ride, we took the ride part way and talked the whole time. When we weren’t ready with our luggage yet, they were so cool with not rushing us. We mentioned a certain cheese we had wanted- and the last day, they got us some as a gift. They all felt like good friends that cared about us, and they took good care of us.
Before, during and after, they were great- if you want to bike Tuscany, this was the way to do it… we didn’t feel we had to go in a large group, go with someone else;s agenda, or fit in a schedule- it was all relaxing (well, the climbs are hard), and well organized. They were certainly there for us if we had issues. Have a great time!
My adult daughter and I spent five lovely spring days going from Napa to Calistoga, to Healdsburg, to Guernville, and finally Bodega Bay. The landscape in April was alive with grape vines, wild flowers, roses in full bloom, and green everywhere. The temperatures were perfect for riding. Lifecycle Adventures offered us the opportunity to determine how many miles we wanted to go each day and how much climbing we wanted to do. Our guide Sherreme was easy-going, informative, and always available, if we needed her. LifeCylce Adventures offered the perfect balance in organizing and supporting us on our adventure while providing us great opportunities to do our own exploring. I am so glad we found this organization. We will definitely be riding with them again.
Lifecycle Adventures is a first rate outfitter with the travelers best interest as first priority. In the front office, Stacey and Laura listen to what a traveler wants and makes it happen. The San Juan bike trips offered are excellent and the accommodations are fantastic.
My husband and I had beyond a wonderful time on our recent LifeCycle adventure in Oregon. Every step of the process was effortless and allowed us to enjoy our vacation that much more. Imagine every piece of a vacation already being logistically laid out to your personal preference by experts? This is what Lifecycle adventures will offer you. The areas we stayed in were amazing: Nice roads, incredible landscape, excellent wineries and restaurants. The turn by turn directions never lead us wrong. We cannot wait to take another trip with LifeCycle Adventures!
