COVID-19 Updates

(Updated 8/6/20)

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.

Visiting Missoula

We are very sorry, but this summer we will not allow visitors in the building. Call us at 406.721.1776 and we will come out and greet you!

We’ll still have you sign our guestbook, offer you a bandana, ice cream, and soda or water. We would love to take your picture to be displayed in our doorway so that you can see if others you have seen on the road have come through. We have tables and chairs and even a bathroom you can use in our outside Missoula Art Park. We'll have a virtual tour of our building and you'll be able to browse our Cyclosource catalog and purchase any gear you might need.

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, availability of services is inconsistent and unpredictable across the network.  

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 September 25, 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.

Adventure Cycling Tours

All Adventure Cycling Guided Tours departing before September 25 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.

Learn more about steps we're taking on our guided tours during this time here

Adventure Cycling Store

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 cyclosource@adventurecycling.org and able to provide limited phone support.

Adventure Cycling Staff Availability

Adventure Cycling staff are primarily working remotely and remain available via email, online chat (Tours only), and other electronic communications during normal business hours. Phone support will remain limited at headquarters, so please be patient and consider contacting us virtually and we’ll respond as quickly as possible!
