A Tour Designed with Women in Mind.
The beauty of a bike tour designed for women is more than location deep. There’s great esprit de corps, unlimited laughing, improved confidence and the opportunity to build your cycling skills in the safety of new friends who have “been there done that”, or “are there doing that.” Come join us in Vermont for a very special, very Terry tour.
When: Thursday, June 16th through Sunday, June 19th. Join this relaxed, educational and social gathering that’s specifically designed for women interested in cycling – from those just getting into the sport to those who’ve been riding for years. Learn more about cycling skills, bike fit for women, nutrition, fitness for cycling, and basic road repairs, all while enjoying miles of fabulous rides in the company of like-minded women.
Where: This long weekend version of Sojourn’s award-winning tour of the Lake Champlain Valley, features Vermont’s prized country roads and picture book landscapes. You’ll ride through historic covered bridges and explore quaint villages in one of the most beautiful states in the US. Gentle valley farmland offers miles of fabulous cycling, and the nearby foothills of the Green Mountains provide challenging options for stronger riders.
The Basin Harbor Club, a classic turn-of-the-century lakeside resort, is the perfect setting for this event as it offers tranquility along with a variety of amenities such as watercraft, tennis, golf, and its very own pub. Riders also get the opportunity to purchase the best in women’s cycling clothing and accessories at discounted pricing. Join us for this very special long weekend and make new friends, learn about women’s cycling-related topics, and enjoy this stunningly beautiful lakeside setting.
Previously offered in early autumn, Sojourn is now offering their Women’s Weekend in mid-June to better suit busy schedules, take advantage of longer days and to start the cycling summer on a high note.

The proper Touring Wardrobe.
What to take on a tour? We get asked this question every day so we feel qualified to share our recommendations. Wicking, loose-fit jerseys with open pockets are a wonderful start, but the bottoms are really the critical item of clothing you want to be sure you’re outfitted properly with. We have a whole line of bottoms designed for touring. They are made of super fast drying T-Dry fabric and they’re outfitted with features specifically created for the needs of tourists: zip pocket (big enough for your iPhone) in case you don’t want to wear a jersey with pockets; higher density Flex Air Tour chamois (designed to give you a little extra padding but also is fully perforated for longer distance comfort); and a multitude of length and size choices (5″ shorter length; 8″ regular mid thigh; 10″ long that’s just above the knee; 17″ knicker just below the knee; full length tights in petite, regular and tall; plus sizes in short, knicker and tight).
Outerwear that not only protects from the elements, but gives you a high visibility advantage with traffic.
Giro Riela with recessed cleat bed that let you ride comfortably without tap dancing off the bike
And a little something special to wear to dinner…
