All my Cycling Friends,

THE SEPTEMBER 8TH TOUR IS FULL !

I have worked very hard on the ride I am sure all of you will like it, I have done it myself and it is a good mix of some climbs and some easier days.

If you decide to get your flight early, I recommend trip insurance. Diana Rau can answer your questions 970-887-3095 w/ no obligation,

Flying into Munich, Germany there is a shuttle service desk right in the lobby of the airport. It can take you directly to your hotel in Innsbruck, Austria. If I remember correctly the cost is $60.00+/-.

I can furnish details when you want them.

CYCLING TOURS WITH DICK HUNT

Dick has been organizing cycling tours throughout Europe for over 25 years, utilizing the same back roads as the Tour d’ France and the Italian Giro. These roads are virtually auto free in most cases. Riding Europe on your own will not take you to these exciting and beautiful roads.

Most of the tours are designed for cyclists with moderate to accomplished ability. On some of the routes your personal judgement becomes an important factor, yet some routes only require a moderate skill.

Each tour consists of 13 nights / days of riding which includes hotels, breakfasts and dinners (with the exception of two “out on your own” nights), sag van (which transports luggage, snacks, drinks and provides rider assistance). The hotels and meals are all the same quality as the more expensive tours advertised on the internet. You are responsible for your air transportation and incidental personal charges.

How can Dick run these tours for such low-low prices? Dick loves cycling and Europe and he too gets in some cycling on the tours. He merely organizes these tours for the group so everyone can experience the best cycling in the world at less than half the price of other “companies”.

Any of the tours can take place when there is a minimum of 12 riders for a tour.

ALL TOURS ARE $2350.00
