FAQ

How do I sign up?

You can Register / Sign-up for a Tour online. Or call our office at 585-424-2124 to do it over the phone, Monday - Friday, 9:00-5:00 Eastern Time. We’ll need a Visa, MasterCard or Discover number or a check for the deposit. If you sign up within 30 days of the start of the tour, we require payment in full. Then we’ll send you a tour confirmation packet with many more details about your trip, including travel arrangements, a packing list and an optional training schedule. Most of our tours fill completely and have waiting lists, so don’t wait too long before deciding to join us!

How do I know if I can do it?

If you can ride 5 miles on your bicycle today, then you can do our tours marked as leisurely. If you can ride 10 miles on rolling terrain, then you can do our moderate tours. If you can ride at least 20 miles on rolling terrain, then you can train to be able to tackle our advanced tours. Remember that our support vehicle is always available to pick you up if you get tired. That’s what we’re there for.

If you're still concerned about being able to do it, then consider renting an e-bike. These electric-assist bicycles flatten out the hills and increase your speed. They make more challenging tours available to more cyclists.

Can I bring my daughter with me?

Yes, we’d love to have your daughter on tour with us, as long as she’s at least 14 years old.

What about electric-assist bikes (e-bikes)?

Electric-assist bikes - or e-bikes - have quiet, battery-powered motors that add power to your pedalng. They increase your speed and assist you in cycling up hills. Most e-bikes have a range of assistance, so you can choose how much of a boost you'd like. E-bikes make it easier to do all the miles in all types of terrain. We allow electric-assist bicycles on our tours if you'd like to bring your own. We also have e-bikes available for rent on most of our trips -- look for the e-bike symbol. We do not make e-bike recommendations if you're considering purchasing your own. We suggest you rent one on a tour first so you can try it!

I am coming alone on this tour. Will I be the only one traveling alone?

Absolutely not. Many of our participants come by themselves. That is part of the reason for the existence of WomanTours--to provide women with riding partners as well as scenic vistas and interesting tours.

"Everything was perfect including the weather! The B&B breakfast and afternoon tea snacks were so wonderful I actually bought their cookbook with the recipes. I expected a nice dinner but the places that we ate at were spectacular. I had planned to hopefully lose a few on this trip, but unfortunately that was not the case - but what the heck I had a wonderful time!"

Bike Tour Itinerary

DAY 1: We meet in Cape May, New Jersey, one of only five cities in the U.S. that is officially designated an Historical Landmark City. The area is full of charming Victorian homes, lighthouses, a bird sanctuary, bays, beaches, and wetlands. One charming inn will be our base for the tour, so you can unpack your bags. Everyone will have her own room on this tour, unless you'd prefer to share with someone.

Come dressed and ready to bike for our orientation at 1:00pm. Then we’ll conduct a rental bike fitting and have our first bike ride. We’ll cycle past the 157’ tall Cape May Lighthouse, built in 1859. It is one of the region’s most painted and photographed landmarks. We’ll also pass a bird sanctuary and an old historic nunnery.

If you arrive early, take the time to stroll along the Washington Street Mall, a three-block pedestrian concourse lined with clothing boutiques, kitschy souvenir shops, toy stores and ice-cream shops, or along the beautiful white sand beach. We will have our first dinner together tonight. 16 miles ±90'.

DAY 2: Today we ride along the beautiful shores of the Delaware Bay on the recently lengthened Cold Springs Bike Path. We’ll cycle past lush farmland, the Delaware ferry terminal and more sandy beaches. We’ll have a picnic lunch in a park located in the Delaware Bay Estuary, home to diverse plant and animal life and then head back to our beautiful inn. 26 or 39 miles ±300’ for longer ride.

DAY 3: After breakfast together, we’ll begin our ride up the Atlantic coast to Wildwood, voted “Best Beach in N.J.” and home to over 200 motels, built during the Doo-Wop era of the 50s and 60s. From there we’ll continue on to Avalon, famous for being a South Jersey seashore resort. It has the motto “Cooler by a Mile”, because it juts out into the Atlantic Ocean about a mile farther than any other barrier island resort. Finally, we’ll head to the cozy oceanfront village of Stone Harbor. The summertime beachgoers shouldn’t be there, so we’ll have the beautiful beach to ourselves. 21 or 39 miles ±202' for longer ride.

DAY 4: Our final ride together will take us through streets of Cape May lined with Victorian homes to the coast guard station and a lookout tower over a partially-sunken concrete ship. We’ll have one last picnic lunch together before we say our good-byes. Then WomanTours will provide a shuttle to the Atlantic City or Philadelphia airports, arriving by 2:00pm or 3:00pm. 16 miles ±73'.
