Would you have guessed that one of the top destinations for US bicycle touring holidays is Croatia?
When you see that they experience 245 days of sunshine a year, you can understand the attraction, especially when combined with the Dalmatian coast and clear blue seas for swimming, good food, and drink.
One of the top American bike tour companies, Backroads, runs a Croatian bike tour from Split to Dubrovnik, which combines cycling with island hopping so you see Brač, Hvar and Korcula islands on your way, and bike hire is included in the price, whether you go for straight or drop handlebars, conventional bike or e-bike or tandem. You can opt to upgrade to a Specialized S-Works Roubaix or Specialized S-Works Ruby at a cost of $400.
The trip is 6 days and 5 nights, with accommodation and all breakfasts included, as well as 4 dinners and 3 lunches. Depending on your travel dates, the prices range from $4198 to $4498 based on two people sharing a room; add $670 for a single supplement.
