Companies Targeting Bicycle Tourists

My friends and I always say we will take one of those bicycling wine tours some day. But with lots of other "bicycle tourism" options popping up, we may not stop there.

A former hunting ranch in Oregon has recently switched gears, reinventing itself as a vacation destingation for urban cyclists who want to experience the Old West by bicycle.

The 300 acre ranch is located near a ghost town about 190 miles east of Portland and is offering packages starting at $225 per person per night. This includes three meals a day, accomodations in a spacious guest house and full ride support (including a mid-ride picnic) when you're out on the roads riding. Sounds more cushy than most of my vacations. Here's more from the Bike Portland Blog.
