For inspiration, revisit the origins of Adventure Cycling as told by former Adventure Cyclist editor Dan D'Ambrosio in this article, "Bikecentennial: Summer of 1976."

I look forward to hearing your ideas!

Hi Doug,

We're not sure yet which activities will be part of the 40th celebration, or the size of the groups. We will keep you posted!

Really interested in Transamerica trail in 2016, would be great if it could have a climate change awareness as part of its mission, would love to see a cast of thousands, just like 76. Please update with info asap. I would be willing to aid in organization.

I will be 70 in 2106 and ready to do the trail again. Send me the details. A member of our '76 group, John Ludway, has been in the early stages of a 40th reunion already, so we are primed for it. I keep thinking of re-riding the trail, and a reunion will get me out there to do it.

It was nice of Bill Foreman (who we called "Ranger Rick" during our half-crossing in '76) to mention me, and re-riding the trail would be a blast, but I'd really like to see some new signs along the route and a DVD of our (Adventure Cyclists') exploits then, and since.
