Companions Wanted

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.

TransAm - Western Express

Created: Apr 25, 2016

I am a male architect from New York looking for 1 or 2 fellow cyclists to join me from mid August through late November on a U.S. westward coast-to-coast tour. I will be riding the TransAmerica trail from its start in Yorktown, VA, west to Pueblo, CO, and then transferring to the Western Express from its start in Pueblo, CO, to its end at San Francisco, CA. I will be utilizing camp sites, cyclist shelters, etc, to keep the budget low. Email

Northern Tier - West to East

Created: Apr 19, 2016

We both support a great organization like Adventure Cycling, so if you're reading this, it seems to me that that it would be fun to meet up along the Northern Tier Route. I'm not necessarily looking for riding companions for the whole route (though I'm not opposed to that). More along the lines of "if we're in the same area" for a couple of days of riding or even just something as simple as swapping stories over beans & rice cooked on a WhisperLite. I start on May 26 or 27 in Anacortes, Washington. I currently live in the Great Lakes region, so I'll take parts of the North Lakes route though Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. It'll be a mix of camping, hotels, and Warm Showers. Mileage will depend on the day and conditions. Email

Yorktown to Yosemite

Created: Apr 11, 2016

Looking for one cycling companion for all or part of the journey from Yorktown, VA, to Yosemite, CA, starting August 13 through late Nov/early Dec. Approximately 4,500 miles (75+ avg/day; some less, some more, plus camping 95% of the trip). Main inspiration is to visit national parks along the routes (Mammoth Caves, Grand Canyon, Zion, Yosemite, Sequoia NP). I am a highly active, fit 24-year-old male from NY with no touring experience, but extremely high mental and physical endurance. Just looking for a partner for obvious safety reasons and to share the experience with. Email

Ride the BikeCentennial route 40 years later — I'm going and looking for company. I always go on RAGBRAI (last full week in July) so timing is somewhat important. I plan on starting in Astoria on May 15 with the goal of finishing in two months. 4,200 miles in 60 days? That's about 70 per day. Not a fan of total rest days, better to keep moving. I am willing to do short days. We can't schedule rain days. May 15 is a bit early so I will be trying to limit my riding the first couple of weeks so I don't burn out. Big-mile days can be had in the mid-section of the country. A mix of camping, motels and Warmshowers.org.

The trip will be van supported, average 50 miles per day and have a 10-person limit. My goal is have a fun-filled, low-key blast, which will include naps, lake dips, and camp-cooked meals!

Sierra Cascades

Sierra Cascades & Pacific Coast Loop

Created: Mar 7, 2016

I am a 60-year-old male looking for others to ride an approx. 2,800 mile loop beginning and ending in San Francisco. The route includes portions of the Adventure Cycling's Western Express, Sierra Cascades, and Pacific Coast Routes. I plan to start in mid-August and return about mid-October. I plan to ride 50-60 miles per day with primarily camping and an occasional Warmshowers or motel as needed. I have some touring experience having cycled from Canada to Mexico on the Pacific Coast Route. The August to October timeframe should be ideal with less crowds and traffic in the mountains and optimum weather out on the coast. Email

Southwest

Loop Tour of Southwest in May

Created: Mar 7, 2016

I am planning a loop route in the southwest starting in early to mid-May and would love to have some company. I will probably drive out to Albuquerque or Phoenix and leave my vehicle there with friends while on the tour. The idea is to do a loop and return back to where I started. I mostly plan on following parts of the Adventure Cycling routes: Grand Canyon Connector, Western Express, Southern Tier, and up or down through New Mexico. I ran the numbers and it looks like its about 2,000 miles for the loop I had in mind, but I am somewhat flexible on where to go. I have ridden parts of these routes, and they are some beautiful country. I am an experienced touring cyclist, who is a married. 65-year-old male that is retiring this summer! Email
