Food is an important part of our events. A 150-pound cyclist can easily burn 800 calories per hour of cycling. To successfully complete a multi-day tour, cyclists must fuel themselves appropriately at breakfast, take in adequate calories at regular intervals while on the bike, and recover with meals designed to replenish glycogen stores and repair muscle.
We rely primarily on the Indiana State Park Inns for breakfasts and dinners on our events. The inns are experienced with preparing meals for large groups of very hungry people. We work to set menus that offer a variety of healthy options, with lots of fresh fruits & vegetables. We develop menus with vegetarian and diabetic needs in mind.
Our meals are fun. We often have a theme for dinner, such as Thanksgiving, Italian, or Mexican night. Meals provide time for our participants to socialize, perhaps try a new regional dish, or splurge on a piping hot piece of apple pie with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

"Thank you all for a wonderful tour. The weather, accommodations and food were terrific."- E. Peden, Minnesota
"The routes were on lesser-traveled roads with nice points of interest, well marked and challenging."- P. & C. Edwards, Indiana
"What a wonderful week I had. Just the right distances to make it challenging. The routes were clearly marked and not once did I have to use the map for directions, only for when my next food/drink stop was."-J. Schepper, Indiana
