2021 Desert Camp
We are hoping the restrictions concerning the Covid virus will continue to improve and that Arizona restaurants will maintain indoor service for at least 50% of patrons. It is the goal of PAC Tour provide a safe and fun tour within the limitations of local virus restrictions. Wearing masks when not riding and keeping the group spread out will be encouraged during the tour.
PAC Tour has revised our cancelation policy for Desert Camp to include a $500 nonrefundable and nontransferable deposit to sign up for each week of tours. We hope this upcoming cycling season will be more predictable and return to a routine that we all remember.

E-Bikes 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.
