We categorize this route for recreational cyclists. A cyclist should be comfortable riding over bridges, on roads with small shoulders and in light traffic. A cyclist should feel comfortable riding 20-40 miles and more if desired. While some of our cycling days may be 30-60 miles in length, a support and gear vehicle is available at all times. So, you can ride as little or as much as you would like.

The tour is more than cycling. There is history on the Outer Banks. We’ll follow along the network of lighthouses and life saving stations that served these waters known as “The Graveyard of the Atlantic”. Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the most famous. We’ll also visit the Bodie Island, Hatteras, Ocracoke Lighthouses.

Our ride winds through the marshlands, where we will see an abundance of bird life in the creeks and grasses. We will be bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by Pamlico Sound

This is the perfect time of year to jump start you fitness routine with some flat coastal riding.

We stay in beautiful small coastal towns. You will enjoy healthy breakfasts, picnic lunches and dine out each evening for dinner.

Guest Testimonial:

"The Outer Banks tour offers much variety.  There are historical sights, scenic waterfront spots, quaint villages, good restaurants for recharging in the evenings and great bike riding.  Dennis and Elli do everything possible to manage the logistics and minimize the amount of time riding in the van.  I have done tours with several different companies.  I believe Cycle of Life Adventures did the best job I have experienced in planning and executing a tour.  I highly recommend them to other cyclists."  Len - Phoenix, AZ
