Subaru Outback Joins Cross-Country Tour Fleet

Please welcome the newest member of the WomanTours support vehicle fleet. She's a 2007 Subaru Outback, soon to be equipped with WomanTours signage, roof rack, first aid kit, bicycle tool kit, water cooler, snack tray, spare tires and tubes, sunscreen and toilet paper.

We'll use her as a SAG (Support and Gear) vehicle on our Northern Tier tour this June instead of a sweep bicyclist. Four of our riders will switch off driving her along the route, providing everything a fellow bicyclist might need, including a lift. In return for volunteering their time one out of every four days, the SAG drivers receive a discount on the tour price. We still need one more driver for this summer's tour.

We use our Subarus and SAG drivers on all our epic bike tours, such as the cross-country Southern Tier and Northern Tier, the Meandering Mississippi and the Northwest Loop. We couldn't run the tours without them!
