Well, there's no compelling reason to move and many reasons to stay. We're located in a wonderful state for bicycling, and our mission meshes well with the vibrant, creative community of Missoula. Finally, it's a great excuse for people from more crowded areas pay a visit to the mecca for bicycle travel and experience the beauty of Big Sky Country. Our Contact Us page tells you more about our headquarters. Learn more about visiting Missoula.
Thousands, and growing. However, it's difficult to give an exact number since many people just get up and go. We can look at three indicators from our organization's perspective:
In the last decade, we’ve seen a 40% growth in our membership and a 42% growth in map sales. Since 2002, the number of visiting cyclists to our Missoula, MT, headquarters has nearly doubled, from 555 in 2002 to 1,096 in 2010. In 2012, Adventure Cycling had its best year since being established in 1973.
Students, retirees, former military, young, old, men, women, solo adventurers, fundraisers, families, and the list goes on!
Many cross-country cyclists whom we encounter are in the midst of a life transition, having recently graduated from college or other institution, retired, or having experienced a loss or an addition in their lives. Some of them are simply looking for a new challenge, or they're on the road to raise money and awareness about a cause or issue about which they feel impassioned. Some are just out to have fun!
