Mountain Biking with Gary Fisher

Anyone who mountain bikes should know what a Gary Fisher bike is. I know it particularly well because my husband's Gary Fisher bike was stolen when he was in college, and he has never fully recovered from the loss.

Gary Fisher, named "The Founding Father of Mountain Bikes" by Smithsonian Magazine, will guide mountain bike enthusiasts on a 363-mile ride September 3-10, 2007 through historic villages in and around Portugal's mountains. This is an amazing opportunity to bike one of the most scenic bike rides with one of the most famous bike makers -- Fisher is credited with inventing the mountain bike in 1975 and has a line of bikes appropriately named Gary Fisher.

This advanced-level ride takes bicyclists 363 miles over eight days, with two guides along the way. The shortest day will include 32 miles of riding, while the longest day will be 66 miles. All meals, including 7 dinners, are provided. Riders stay in two- or three-star inns. Transfers and a "chase" vehicle are provided, all for 1,150 Euros (about $1,567) per person. Without lodging or food, the price is 650 Euros ($887). Sign up today at A2Z Adventures.

FYI: This trip is not for the beginner mountain biker, 66 miles in one day is a long ride.
