ABOUT IMAGINE TOURS
Imagine Tours offers cycling tours
to scenic spots in the states and abroad, handpicking routes to include
interesting and exciting destinations as well as the quietest and
most picturesque roads we can find. We keep the cost as inexpensive
as possible, and we couldn't accomplish this without our experienced
and dedicated volunteer staff!
The company began in 1989 when we
launched our “flagship” event, California Tour North,
a 5-day tour that grew to 700 riders. CTN was soon joined by California
Tour South and Canada's Big Island Tour. Still owned and operated
by one of the two original founders, Imagine Tours offers small tours
now ... casual, informal and fun.
"I have been on three cycling tours with Imagine Tours and without a doubt each one has been a special experience in its own way! Nancy does a tremendous job of routing scenic courses, providing exquisite customer service, and creating a friendly open atmosphere for all levels of cyclists."
- Ces Guerra
Our cyclists tend to be regular recreational
riders, with a fairly wide range of riding speeds and styles. If you're
an inexperienced rider or have been away from cycling for awhile,
putting in some saddle time before the tour will make the trip more
enjoyable for you. The difficulty level varies from tour to tour,
but you can usually count on at least some hilly or mountainous terrain.
Not only are the mountains less populated, but that’s where
all the great scenery is!
"Having taken more than 10 trips with Imagine Tours, I continue to be impressed with every new tour. From cycling the Washington Cascades to rolling over the cobblestone streets of Spain, every Imagine Tour I've taken has exceeded my expectations. The personal attention, friendliness of the staff and the creative choice of routes are the reasons I'll continue to tour with Imagine."

Luggage transportation and vehicle
support are always included. The support vans provide water, snacks
… and a ride if necessary. But you're encouraged to get in
condition before the tour so you can see the sights by bicycle ...
not by van.*
* China and Africa tours are exceptions.
There's a seat for each participant in the support vehicles, so
you can ride as much or as little as you want. Even non-cyclists
can enjoy the sights from the van, which travels along the route
with the cyclists and stops at all the same attractions. You won't
miss a thing.
