COVID-19 Updates

(Updated 5/13/20)

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 canceled our own guided tours through July 1, 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 “Phase 1” of a reopening plan, and the Adventure Cycling office in Missoula remains closed to the public at this time. Staff are slowly returning to the office throughout the month — please be patient regarding response and shipping times. Detailed support information is below.

Adventure Cycling Tours

All Adventure Cycling Guided Tours departing before July 1 have been canceled. Please review our cancellation and transfer policy for details here

We are evaluating the status of departures after that time on an ongoing basis and will remain in regular communication with registered participants.

The Adventure Cycling Store will remain open seven days a week online with orders shipping daily. Store staff will be available for digital communication during normal business hours at and able to provide limited phone support.

Adventure Cycling Staff Availability

Adventure Cycling staff are transitioning back to the office but are still largely working remotely and remain available via email, online chat (Tours only), and other electronic communications during normal business hours.
