North Carolina

September 17-22 and September 24-29

If you’ve been anxiously awaiting fall since the first day of winter last year, wait no longer! Trek Travel has a couple of September trips lined up. Bike through North Carolina’s incomparable Blue Ridge Parkway as it turns fiery red and golden, traveling from Asheville to Highlands for a five-night, six-day trip. A local guide will ensure you hit all the top spots for sightseeing those ancient rolling hills, as well as the region’s best food and local breweries. You’ll get plenty of down time to explore on your own, so we suggest checking out the Biltmore Estate. Non-riders are welcome, but the trip is rated as an Active ride, meaning you should be comfortable with at least two hours on your bike at a strong pace.

Vermont

September 17-22, September 24-29, and October 1-6

Vermont is an autumn overachiever. The state’s Green Mountains become anything but — a mosaic of yellows and reds that are impossibly vivid. Trek Travel will lead you on a five-day, six-night journey from Middlebury to Stowe, going through places like Gold Brook Bridge and the Green Mountain Forests and resting up in luxurious inns with histories like the Middlebury Inn. Plus, thanks all that pedaling, you should feel guilt-free while savoring Vermont’s fresh maple syrups, cheeses, and ice creams. Riders should rate themselves somewhere in the neighborhood of Recreational to Active.

Tennessee

October 29-November 3

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is Blackberry Farm. This world-class Tennessee hotel sits on a whopping 4,200 acres of pristine nature. On this trip, you’re invited to explore the Farm, ride over the Foothills Parkway, kayak, fly fish, horseback ride, and relax by the campfire at night with a canopy of stars overhead. The food is unparalleled, most of it fresh from the farm, which is famed for its heirloom gardens, heritage livestock, and amazing wine cellar. Riders will be looking at the same difficulty level as Vermont: Active to Recreational.
