Adventure Cycling Association has members worldwide, and some people are surprised to learn that we have only one office, which is located at 150 E. Pine St. in Missoula, Montana. Before we purchased the building in 1991, our facility was a church and, since converting it to an office, we've been continually looking for ways to squeeze in new staff as we grow. In 2012, we renovated and expanded the building.
Missoula is on a number of Adventure Cycling’s mapped routes and is visited by hundreds of bicycle travelers each year. Some are riding coast to coast across America, others are on shorter jaunts to destinations such as Glacier National Park or the mountains of British Columbia. Still others are on camper-van family vacations or trekking to Missoula for work and take the opportunity to visit the place many people consider the bicycle-travel mecca.
We have employees in the building Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, but in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be unable to let visitors inside our entire building. Knock on the door or call us at 406.721.1776 and we will come on out and bring you into our conference room!
We’ll still have you sign our guestbook and 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 conference room. Cyclists will be able to enjoy Greg Siple’s historic photos of the 1976 Bikecentennial as well as look through the TransAmerica book, flip through copies of past Adventure Cyclist magazines, and gather local information. 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.
Visit our Open Road Gallery Online to view a small sampling of the parade of bicycle travelers who have stopped by the office, or check out our more candid shots of visiting cyclists slideshow below. (View visiting cyclists from past years.)
