COVID-19 Updates

(Updated 4/9/20)

Adventure Cycling Association has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation to help ensure the health and safety of our members, tour participants and leaders, staff, and community. We believe the bicycle travel community is well prepared for a moment such as this, as the skills and outlook for a tour translate well in uncertain times. Be strong, be smart, be kind, and be healthy — and hopefully we see you out on the road and trail soon.

This page is being updated with changes to operations, including sales, tours, and staff availability.

Riding the Adventure Cycling Route Network

At this time, Adventure Cycling Association discourages cyclists from embarking on long-distance bike travel along the Adventure Cycling Route Network. 

We believe the bicycle travel community has a responsibility to avoid endangering the health of small communities and straining limited medical resources. Moreover, shelter-in-place and quarantine orders exist at many levels of government across our network, and availability of services is inconsistent and unpredictable.  

We can’t say for certain when it will be safe to take long tours again, but at this time we’ve cancelled our own guided tours through June 15, and are evaluating on an ongoing basis beyond that date. 

In the meantime, Adventure Cycling is hard at work to improve bike travel conditions, develop new routes for future adventures, and make sure we’re ready to help you when it’s time to hit the road once again.

Overall Operational Impacts

Montana is under a Shelter-in-Place order and the Adventure Cycling office in Missoula is closed through April 24, with staff are working remotely. Please be patient regarding response and shipping times. Detailed support information is below.
