To our bike family, pals, and future guests!
What a journey it's been. WE MISS YOU.
In light of it all, we wanted to make sure we inform you about some big changes we have up our sleeve!
We've been incredibly fortunate to have spent the four of months consulting with a member of our cycling community and epidemiologist in regards to moving forward with The Cyclist's Menu. Together, we've developed some big changes within our general camp layout for the remainder of 2020 & all of 2021.
The best way to keep all of you safe, is to ensure that no one on our trip is sick. We will make every effort to make that happen! Most importantly though, this takes a partnership with you: our guest. In the two weeks leading up to our trip, we intend to self isolate as best we can and would ask all of you to do the same to limit your risk of becoming infected.
During these two weeks that precede our trip, if you develop any COVID symptoms, we will insist that you do not travel. Also, if you have any significant exposure or someone in your household becomes sick, we ask you to please stay home. We will work directly with you to reschedule your travel and any future plans with The Cyclist’s Menu at that time. With this active partnership, we are confident that we can keep everyone safe & healthy during our upcoming trips.
In order to do this appropriately under local regulations in all of our domestic destinations; we’ll be placing new efforts into our operations to ensure your safety, comfort and ease.
Domestic Gravel Camps (2020/2021):
International Gravel and/or Road Camps (2021):
On March 16th, 2020 we made the decision to cancel all of our immediate, upcoming tours and overseas trips. It was the right thing to do and the only decision we had to keep our staff and guests safe. In some ways, that made it easier. However, in others, it was the toughest decision we’ve had to make in our 6 years of business. We had trips in France, Italy and Vermont that we couldn’t wait to share with you. 2021 will be even more special!
We're working closely with our lodging options to make sure we’re collectively making the right decisions about hosting an experience or choosing to cancel specific dates if need be. If you have any questions or concerns about our policies regarding signups, cancelations, refunds or credits, please don’t hesitate to call or email us, anytime.
As many of you know, The Cyclist’s Menu now has a permanent address in Patagonia. It’s been an incredible journey reshaping the main straw bale house, guest house and gardens for your enjoyment in the future. Believe us, we aren’t done yet! But, we’re getting close. Our biggest goal here for the remainder of 2020 & all of 2021 is to host private groups here!
***If you'd like to reserve a private AZ Gravel Camp for you & your pals during one of our already scheduled weeks of camp, please let us know as soon as you can so we can block that week off for y'all!
Finally! We’d like to take this moment to thank you all for your continued support. You are our family. The memories we collectively hold are the life blood of who we are and what we do at The Cyclist’s Menu. It drives the beginning of each new season, and fills us with pride and emotion as we unroll new destinations around the globe. Our relationships will define who we are and what we become from now on. Thank you for giving us this opportunity.
As you consider the next 3 to 18 months of your adventurous journey on this planet, check back once in a while! We’ve got some fun stuff up our sleeves that we want you to know about. At this time, The Spirit World 100 is moving forward with the event festivities hosted by the Town of Patagonia, November 5-8, 2020. We will keep everyone who’s currently signed up and those on the wait list informed with details as they arise. Thank you for your patience!
From Patagonia with all our love, we can’t wait to explore with you all again soon. Be well, stay in touch!
Teeth to the wind,
Heidi & Z
