Great Freedom Adventures’ cycling tours take bikers through some of the Northeast’s most stunning landscapes, from Vermont’s rolling hills to the shores of Martha’s Vineyard. Many coincide with bird and butterfly migrations and seasonal harvests. The three- to six-day fully supported tours include plenty of off-bike adventures: Learn about the ecology and wildlife of diverse habitats, and discover local art and architecture en route. Trips are suitable for occasional to avid cyclists, and let you travel at your own pace, riding from 8 to 55 miles a day. Book by Nov. 30 and pay this year’s price for next year’s adventure. Rates start at $795, including lodging, most meals, excursions, guides, luggage transport, van support, and free bike rental.  877-545-1864, www.greatfreedomadventures.com
