2016 Week Long State Bike Tours

This morning I assembled a list of all the major week long bike tours I could come up with in 2016.  Obviously doing a tour is on my mind.  I’m not including boutique tours for small groups, just the big ones.  Maybe it will help you in your planning.  Also didn’t include anything in california because who would want to ride a bike in that crappy state.  (Sarcasm)
