Companions Wanted

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.

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

Either Pacific or Atlantic Coast - 2015

I'll be 64 (male) in 2015 and want to ride either the Pacific or Atlantic Coast routes. I've ridden across the U.S. in 1997 (Southern Tier) mostly solo, and am looking to both camp out and for WarmShowers-type accommodations, but mostly camping out if weather and campgrounds permit.

Natchez Trace or...

Created: Dec 20, 2014

OK, thinking about these great rides like Natchez Trace. Here's the dilemma: Get with car to Memphis to start the ride. Arrive in Natchez X days/weeks later. How do I get back to my car? So looking to see if other riders have the same problem. Can we get together and one group goes one way and the other the other way? Who finishes first will ride one or two cars to the other end, taking his group to the start and their vehicles. Or am I over-thinking this? I have no dates (recouping from major blood-clots in leg artery) — not even a car yet, but maybe by the end of February. So if you have a great alternative answer let me know as well. Email

Grand Canyon

Considering a self-supported loop journey from Las Vegas (southern Utah –Zion National Park – south to Grand Canyon – south and west to Route 66 – Lake Mead) No dates set. I hope to average 50 miles per day but this will depend on weight, terrain, and wind direction. I'm 61 and live in Cleveland, Ohio. I’ll probably camp with stops at motels weekly, and will be eating at different dining spots. Email

While I've backpacked along the Appalachian Trail (it was great fun), I've never experienced self-contained, cross-country bicycle touring. I've thought about it for many years, and it is something I want to do before I leave this world. When I start I will be new at it, and I thought traveling with other, like-minded people would be good. Email
