Private Home Stay Program
The purpose of the Private Home Stay Program is to provide cyclists who prefer not to camp or stay at hotels with a bed and a bathroom. It is a great way for cyclists to meet local residents and learn more about the community they’re passing through. By reserving a room, at a very modest price, through the Private Home Stay Program, you will not only enjoy the comforts of home, but you will help generate revenue for a deserving group or organization in the area!
Please note that there are limited home stays available. The Host Communities will work hard to match you with Home Stay in their area.
Please check back frequently for updates on the PTP Home Stay Program.
