Price includes accommodations (double occupancy), full ride and mechanical support, and massage. Price does not include airfare or meals when not on the bike.

Providing meals would be a disservice due to the many restaurants and cafes that the participants may want to experience and enjoy while on vacation. The rooms also have kitchenettes for those with specific dietary needs and want to prepare their own food.
