2021 Southern Transcontinental - September to October
The Covid restrictions are changing and we to maintain the requirements of the region that we are visiting. It is the goal of PAC Tour to provide a safe and fun tour within the limitations of local virus restrictions. We are encouraging riders and crew to get vaccinated and if that is not possible then mask wearing and social distancing will be encouraged to those unvaccinated people. Everyone should bring several masks to wear when necessary.

Please read if you are bringing an E-Bike on PAC Tour
During the past few years E-bikes have become more popular with serious recreational cyclists. Many riders are asking if they can bring their E-bike on PAC Tour. Our PAC Tour policy is that E-bikes are welcome with a few suggestions and concerns.
1. Due the extremes of headwinds, steep climbs, riding speed and longer distances all E-bikes should have twice the recommended battery range needed for the miles being traveled each day. We have seen several riders run out of power before lunch time after only completing 2/3 of the daily distance.
2. Batteries should be removable and riders should bring a spare battery. PAC Tour does not have charging stations in the middle of the day. Some E-bikes are heavy when being carried to 2nd floor hotel rooms. E-bikes will not alway have ground floor rooms.
3. Riders should have the mechanical and electrical knowledge of how to maintain and repair their E-bike. Some E-bikes require special tools and parts to service their complicated internal power source and motor. Riders should have a working knowledge of how to charge and change batteries.
