What Does It Cost?


So... what’s all of this spectacularness going to cost?


Why, I’m so glad you asked!


Please keep in mind:


INCLUDED


• A top quality bicycle rental in Mexico. Your choice of a road bike, hybrid,, or an ebike -- as you prefer.


• Six nights of lodging in a luxury resort. Price is based on two people per room. Single rooms available for an additional fee.


• Some days we transport your rental bike and you to a new location to start the ride for that day. All included.


• Six full wonderful dinners.  Six full breakfasts.  Lunch or snacks every day.  (You might be out on the road and not in the mood for a sit-down lunch!) We'll always buy the first drink at dinner -- if you want that 50-year-old Scotch, you're on your own!


• All rides are lead by our local cycling experts who speak perfect English.


• All transportation during the ride, whenever we're not traveling by bike.


• All gratuities. (The only exception here is your cab ride to and from the Puerto Vallarta airport. Taxi price are fixed, and a tip of 10% is considered to be just right in Mexico).


NOT INCLUDED


• Airfare.  Prices vary (and some of you may be using frequent flyer miles or other alternatives). You'll be flying to and from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.


Why don’t we arrange airfare? Because in the internet age you can get a much better deal on airfare online than we can ever get by calling up one airline directly and offering to buy a big block of tickets.  When you book your own flight you get to pick the flights and airports that work best for you.  (Can you imagine trying to get everyone to agree on one airport and one flight time?  Yikes!)


• Taxi from the airport in Mexico. (About $20 including tip. That price is per car; not per person).


• Dinners include alcoholic drinks in moderate proportions for those who wish to imbibe.  If you want to drink beyond that (or want that $100 bottle of wine or $50 glass of port) you have to pay for it yourself.


• Spa services such as massage or beauty treatments.


• Souvenirs


TOTAL PRICE: $3899 per person.

Our prices are based on two people per room.


If you want a private room of your own please add $650.  (We don't earn anything from that private-room fee -- we just give that money to the hotels.)


Discount! We welcome credit cards. If you prefer, pay your balance by check, Venmo, PayPal, or Zelle and save $75 per person!



PAYMENT SCHEDULE


You don’t have to pay for the entire trip all at once if you don’t want to.


When you register for the ride we will ask for a $500 deposit by credit card to save your space in the ride.


An additional $1,000 per person is due within 30 days after you register.


The final balance is due no later than 30 days before your trip. Failure to make this payment on time will lead to bad stuff. (Like forfeiting your previous payments).


We'll send you an invoice as a friendly reminder when payments are due.


CANCELLATION POLICY


Need to Cancel Right Away?


Not to worry -- you have 14 days from the time you register to cancel without penalty. You get back your entire $500 deposit.


If You Cancel Between 15-30 Days


You will have a $500 credit with us, which you can use for any of our events.


If You Cancel After 30 Days


After 30 days we are unable to offer credits or refunds of any kind for any reason. Ever. You can sell your spot on your own if you wish.


SO... we strongly recommend that you consider buying trip insurance here.  That way if something happens where you can’t attend the trip you’re covered. This insurance is offered by an excellent insurance company that has paid out many times to our cycling friends over the years. Every trip we do we get a last-minute plea from a cyclist with a real emergency.  Trip insurance covers you and gets you a refund. No matter how ill your mother/cat/ficus tree is, we can not issue ANY refunds -- that's why we recommend trip insurance.


Prices for the insurance? Depend on the options you pick. Feel free to go to the insurance site here and play around -- no commitment or credit card required. No sales pitches or phone calls.
