Bicycle Sportive
Tours International


You spend lots of time at the office and lots of time in the saddle. You’ve earned the right to indulge a little bit. Bicycle Sportive Tours International was established for cycling enthusiasts who want to get the most out of their cycling trip.

Bicycle Sportive is a boutique tour operator specializing in active vacations in North America. We provide comprehensive trips for individuals and groups who prefer active travel as a way to see the world and prefer to do it in the company of new friends. It’s basically a travel club for cyclists.

Founder Lindsay Carswell, has been staging major sports events and corporate hospitality programs for more than fifteen years. He has also traveled throughout North America participating in running, triathlon and cycling events. The camaraderie among cyclists and a desire to get the most out of every weekend compelled him to create customized destination experiences for avid cyclists.

We book memorable trips around the world but specialize in cycling experiences in the western United States and Canada. We live here and know the area well. We know the best bike shops, we know the best routes and we know the best eats.

You’ll immerse yourself in a way that most visitors never even knew existed.

We believe in pampering ourselves while on vacation and choose hotels that fit that bill. You will enjoy modern comforts and welcome hospitality during your stay. We find the hotels that provide secure bike storage and are conveniently located near the best routes!


Food and drink are as integral to the enjoyment of our trips as is the riding.

Everything is included – appetizers, soups, salads, desserts and booze. For non-hosted meals, we are able to make local recommendations, whether you want a romantic escape for two, a lively group dinner or an intense carbo-loading session.

Whether it’s a reserved spot in the front starting corral of a gran fondo, a pro team visit during a Tour race or the best espresso cafe in town, Bicycle Sportive has the pass to get you in. Stay close, let’s have some fun.
