I have some exciting news to share this week that’s especially interesting for anyone who either couldn’t attend camp in April or needs an excuse for a weekend out of town this summer. The Inn on Biltmore Estate, nestled in the hills of Asheville, N.C., has an exciting weekend of cycling planned this August. And it includes cycling with me and hearing about the stories I’ll be gathering at this year’s Tour de France (who I rode with, my favorite sites to watch, etc.). It really is an exciting weekend for anyone who wants a change of scenery for their rides, plus cycling instruction and an intimate riding experience–this opportunity is limited to 20 cyclists!
Here are more details for the Biltmore Cycle Adventure that starts on Thursday, August 5, and runs through Sunday, August 8.
- The package includes road riding through the Blue Ridge Mountains, fabulous culinary cuisine that’s artfully paired with wine, and enough free time to explore George Biltmore’s 8,000-acre estate.
- The three-night package starts at check-in on Thursday, August 5, and ends at check-out on Sunday, August 8. It costs $1,998 per cyclist with the option to add a non-cycling guest to your package for an additional $384.
- The costs cover deluxe accommodations at the Inn on Biltmore Estate, a daily power breakfast, express lunches on Friday and Saturday to get you back outside to enjoy the property, welcome reception and dinner, and a keepsake photo album from the weekend.
- In terms of cycling perks, you’ll get cycling and fitness tips, an instructor-led warm up, storage for your bicycle, technical assistance, and three rides with me.
- Hurry and decide because the spots will be open to all Biltmore guests come June 1.
- Reservations can be made on-line 24 hours a day, by logging onto www.biltmore.com/stay/rates. The group code is 18w95j. Or you can call (866) 779-6277 and identify yourself as being part of the Biltmore Cycle Adventure with Robbie Ventura to make room reservations. Telephone reservations can be made Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Who’s with me? I promise it’ll be a fun time. And if you’re from Chicago, you’ll get a taste of hills that you can’t find at home.
