Trip Expenses

We are occasionally asked how much does a "pampered" cross country tour cost.  It got me to thinking about the Total Cost.  

My quick calculation is about $10,000 per person which includes some general bike supplies and a few splurge items. This is $1,333 per week.

The registration is about $8,000 per person ($16,000):
Meals - chef prepared breakfast, lunch, dinner
Lodging - tent services and hotels
Luggage Transportation
Laundry Service
Support and Gear (SAG) - beverage and snacks three stops per day
Bike Mechanic
