Self Contained Tours

Self-contained camping tours have been an Adventure Cycling tradition for forty years. To many cyclists, this style of travel is the ultimate. Depending on your own power, cooking your own meals, carrying your “home” with you—it’s a sense of freedom that must be experienced to be understood.

An Adventure Cycling leader accompanies each group of up to fourteen riders traveling between forty and seventy miles per day. Our shorter self-contained trips have fixed itineraries, but on our longer self-contained trips, only the starting and ending dates are fixed, so groups can adapt daily riding distances to the weather, terrain, and attractions along the way. The leader,  with the group’s input, plans each day’s adventure. Schedules typically include a rest day every seven to ten days. Riders share cooking duties and camp for the vast majority of overnights; on longer tours, roughly one indoor night per ten riding days is budgeted.
