Each year, hundreds of cyclists grab their maps, plan their tours, pack their panniers or trailers, and head for the open roads and trails of America. Many of these intrepid two-wheeled travelers would like to have company for the journey. If you're looking for a touring companion for your adventure, here's the place to start. The cyclists below are all members of the Adventure Cycling Association, and they're getting ready to pack up and take off.

Coast To Coast On Electric Bike

Created: Feb 3, 2015

I am 63, fit, working a technical job in the Bay Area, but probably can get 9 weeks leave this summer to ride from Seattle to Boston on the Northern Tier. I own a Surly LHT with an electric bike conversion kit and two batteries, which gives me a range of about 80 miles depending upon hills, wind, and traveling speed. I traveled solo on this same bike from Seattle down to northern California in September 2014 so I suspect cross-country is possible. And it is almost effortless going up hills.! We need to find electricity at night to recharge the batteries, which means staying in motels or finding a campground with ordinary 110 wall plugs. If you are interested, please contact me. Email

Biking the Northern Tier - Summer 2015

I am looking for a few companions to ride across the Northern Tier. I may add part of the Pacific Coast route so the trip can start in San Francisco (I have a few buddies out there I would like to visit) and end in Maine.

Currently, I am working at a healthcare company and have managed to save enough money to finally do this trip. I'm easy going and pretty new to bike touring. I am fit enough but I know I will be working out a few kinks at the beginning. Please message me if you would like to know more about this trip, myself, or both. I look forward to hearing from you and can't wait for this journey to begin. -Chris Email
