Because we focus exclusively on satisfying the unique needs of the independent bicycle tourist, our products and services reflect an unparalleled understanding of those needs and our unwavering commitment to satisfying them.

Vermont is rich in history, pristine landscapes, friendly live-and-let-live people, and an appreciation for a slower pace of life and for the gifts of the land. While cycling here, we’re certain that you’ll appreciate our efforts to create cycling tours that offer:

  • Flexibility and freedom that independent travel affords

Client Views

  • Booking with David saved our vacation! Perfect in every way. I can't recommend David and his services more. This isn't the kind of trip you want to go it alone! David thought of all the details to ensure we had the perfect bike routes and maximized our time. His selection of inns was spot-on -- a variety of properties all different but all special (and with FANTASTIC food and amenities). Can't say enough great things.

  • Did a four day cycling trip in Southern Vermont, roughly 30 miles a day, through quaint small towns. We stayed at a charming local inn each night. David, the owner, provided us the routes to follow each day which were super. Roughly half on backroads and the other half on dirt roads which were quiet and picturesque. They collected our bags each morning to transport and were in communication each day with tips, weather and to check-in. We highly recommend to cyclists that love to get out on the bike but don't want to be bothered with logistics, planning the route and don't want to be a part of a group. Was perfect for us!

  • Wow! David is remarkable! Whatever seemed to go awry, whether a flat, another flat, rain or even support when I had to leave early, David had a back-up plan already developed when he sent a quick reply and made it happen! He was patient, kind and professional at all times. I recommend Diverse Directions Cycling Tours and would select them again in a heartbeat. So glad we found them.
