Each year, hundreds of cyclists grab their maps, plan their tours, pack their panniers or trailers, and head for the open roads and trails of America. Many of these intrepid two-wheeled travelers would like to have company for the journey. If you're looking for a touring companion for your adventure, here's the place to start. The cyclists below are all members of the Adventure Cycling Association, and they're getting ready to pack up and take off.

I just wanna get warm (nod to Mark Heard) Fall 17

Created: Feb 14, 2017

I'm a 60 y/o male with a diverse CV seeking adventurous companions — let's see some of this ol' world while we can. I'm currently living in Pueblo, CO, and my warmshowers ID is Michael Jay Grace. In 2016 I hosted 53 cyclists and got the fever bad, so my hope is to travel warmer climes for at least next winter, roughly from late September 2017 to spring 2018... but nothing carved in stone. I'm much more interested in international but open to where and a bit on the when... what are your dreams? Are you willing and able to make them happen? If yes, let's start talking and see where we end up! TIA and safe travels. Email

First section of TransAm in June

Created: Mar 21, 2017

Planning on doing unsupported TransAm east to west, but don't have the ~90 days to do it all! So I am hoping to complete it in stages over a ~6 year period, each year doing ~700 miles, or two (2) of the Adventure Cycling Organization's trip maps!! So for 2017, using Maps 12 & 13, I am looking at starting in Yorktown, VA, and finishing in Berea, KY, for ~743 miles. I did a ~4,200 mile bike trip in 1984 to get from VA to the '84 Olympics and more recently in 2016 cycled from Chicago to Seattle (mostly on Northern Tier) with my wife as SAG driver. I am a 62-year old, male, retired aquatic biologist. Thinking about leaving ~8 June & cycling between 60-70 miles/day. Camping & Hot Showers preferable, but flexible on most fronts. Cheers! Email

Camping most nights. 2 days off a week to do some watercolor paintings in my analogue blog (journal). My cycling philosophy: If the incline's >9, I'm walking. Would ideally like to travel with a chef, masseur/se, an artist, and a translator, but that's just a cyclist's daydreaming (on a hot exhausting day). I can get along with almost anyone. Email

Tour de SRAM USA 2017

Created: Dec 15, 2016

I'm planning to ride ~3500 miles across the U.S. in one month starting next May from San Luis Obispo, CA, as a fundraiser for World Bicycle Relief (WBR). I proudly work for SRAM and have named this Tour de SRAM USA 2017 as I will visit most of SRAM's major US sites. Details are at facebook.com/TDSU17/. Overnight accommodations are still being worked out — I have possible SAG drivers but not a vehicle. Camping isn't feasible with ~125 miles per day, and I'm committed that 100% of donations go to WBR. I'm looking for people to join me (with a suggested WBR donation of $1/mile) and any assistance with publicity or route tips is greatly appreciated. I can be contacted via the Facebook page or at TDSU2017@gmail.com. Email

The Restore Honor Ride — CA to DC 2017

Created: Sep 26, 2016

This ride is to recognize and honor all the LGBT veterans who served our country and to raise awareness that they can now upgrade their discharges, get the benefits that they've been denied, and re-enlist if they are still eligible. We will start in April 2017 in Santa Monica on the Route 66 trail, transition to the TransAmerica Trail, and finish the final leg on the Atlantic Coast Route. We will ride around 50 miles a day, 6 days a week. We will have experienced SAG support and will stay at RV campgrounds. There is no requirement to raise money to join the ride, but it would definitely be great if you believe in the cause. You could ride the entire way or join for a portion of the ride. I have never done this before, so it will be an adventure. Email

Vancouver to San Francisco — June/July 2017

Created: Mar 6, 2017

I'm planning to bike from Vancouver to San Francisco beginning in late June and would love to ride with a few people. I'd like to ride between 60–80 miles a day with a few days off to see Olympia NP and other sites along the way. It would be great to camp and use Warm Showers, but am open to an occasional hotel. I'm a 33-year-old woman and I teach fifth grade in Massachusetts. I'm looking forward to a summer adventure, let me know if you're interested! Email

Pacific Coast - San Fran to Los Angeles - March

Created: Feb 21, 2017

Hi - I'm a 40-year-old Australian male, currently based in LA, looking to ride the Pacific Coast from SF to LA in mid-March. Expect to take around 10 days at around 50 miles per day. Would welcome company if anyone's keen. Am flexible on accommodation and meal options. Was all set to do it with a friend but he's had to pull out and my wife would prefer I didn't do it alone. Drop me a line if it appeals. Cheers, Ed Email

Wanted: Riding Companions West Coast

Created: Jan 9, 2017

They say the third time's a charm — we'll see. Retired male 65-year-old looking for company for self-contained touring in the West this year. Would like to do some touring in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, California. Both road and Rail Trails. Lots of experience in backpacking, camping, and cycling. Want to combine them all into bike touring the country. I've done a few bike overnight trips the last two years on my own and would now like to do longer trips (weeks/months) and would like some company. Don't have lots of money, camping most nights, motel at times. Thinking about 60 miles/day. No cast-in-stone routes or distance, adjust as necessary for fun and enjoyment. Email

Arizona Loop, April to May 2017

Created: Mar 27, 2017

There are two segments to this Spring 2017 ride: 1. Flagstaff to Phoenix from Friday, 4/28 to Monday, 5/1 following Route 66 and the Grand Canyon Connector. 2. Phoenix to Flagstaff via Sedona, Sunday, 5/7 to Wednesday, 5/10. I would love to have company on either or both legs of the journey. I plan on riding 40–80 self-supported miles a day and either camping out or finding Warmshowers hosts. I can offer you a car ride back to Flagstaff from Phoenix on 5/1. I have substantial touring experience, having completed a solo, self-supported cross-country tour last year (www.memybikeandacamera.com). I hope you can join me in the desert! Email

Western Canada

Seattle to Anchorage!

Created: Feb 21, 2017

Howdy! My name is Audrey Snyder and I'm a 22-year-old female who has bike toured for over 10 years now. I've biked across the country as well as completed the Pacific Coast from Seattle to LA. I'm looking for preferably a female cyclist (sorry guys!) to bike 3–4 weeks up to Anchorage, AK. I've led 6 bike tours in the past, so I know how to have fun as well as be efficient. I'm hoping to stay along the coast for as much as we can and hoping to not be alone! If you're interested, please email me at snydeau@udel.edu. We will primarily camp or stay with WarmShowers. I'm hoping on the off days to do some fishing or bag some peaks along the way. I will be starting around June 1. Email
