USA Self-Guided Tours

Everything was absolutely brilliant and the sights and memories will stay with [us] for a very long time.

Steve Shaw, UK, 2010

Want the freedom to discover America on your own or with friends?

Want the freedom to discover America in your own time?

Want to benefit from our unrivalled expertise in riding and travelling in America?

Want a great price?

Then one of our self-guided tours could be just what you are looking for!

Our self-guided tours are designed for riders looking for the freedom to tour at their own pace, on their own, but with the benefit of our long experience running guided and self-guided tours, and the reassurance of a detailed roadbook, prebooked accommodation, maps, travel and riding tips.

You get to choose the dates you want to travel, and we provide the bikes, the itineraries, help in planning your trip, our tourpack and extensive roadbook.

Discover the USA using, wherever possible, good biking roads, staying in good standard hotels and motels at very reasonable prices? And we encourage you to consider alternative routes and detours on your self-guided holiday. It’s your holiday, so let H-C Travel help you make the most of it!

All of our tours are designed to be flexible, so we can add extra days into the itinerary, or help you plan days ‘off-itinerary’. And all are designed to use great biking roads through great scenery with interesting scenic or historical stops.

And if you can’t find what you are looking for, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss how we can help. We have over 20 years of preparing biking itineraries in the USA
