The Best VBT Bike Tours to Take This Year
VBT Bike Tours offers tours in destinations around the world, but it’s their Maryland Eastern Shore & Chesapeake Bay Tour that most appeals to us – and not just because we partner with them for lodging for tour participants. It’s truly an incredible tour and one that offers you an unparalleled glimpse into what life is actually like on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
The Eastern Shore excursion with VBT Bike Tours is an all-inclusive six-day trip around the Chesapeake Bay. These tours are offered throughout the spring and fall. Each day of the trip, you’ll bike anywhere from 6 – 33 miles, spending 1 – 6 hours in the saddle each day. This is a relatively leisurely tour, offering mostly flat and rural roads with only a few gradual hills throughout.
As you travel along with VBT Bike Tours, you’ll experience all about Maryland’s Eastern Shore, including its maritime traditions and close-knit communities. You’ll dine on the legendary cuisine like crabs and oysters, and you’ll cycle along protected seashores, marshes, and coastal islands as you get to know this special place.
Highlights of the VBT Bike Tours on Maryland’s Eastern Shore include:
- Sailing the eastern shores with Captain Ed aboard the skipjack HM Krentz, an experience that includes a feast on the region’s famous seafood.
