Lewis & Clark Trail for #metoo Movement

Created: May 4, 2018

I'm a 29-year-old female finishing up a master's degree in counseling psychology in May. Before I start my counseling psychology doctoral program in August, I'm biking the Lewis & Clark Trail from St. Louis to Seaside, Oregon, from June 12 to August 12-ish. The bike ride is raising money for RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network), which is connected to the #metoo movement since sexual assault and trauma are my main areas of research interest.

Contact me if interested at 314-458-3683 or shoot an email! Consider also supporting the ride through Email

July 2018 West to East (Full TransAm)

Created: Apr 23, 2018

I'm 37 (woman) and seeking other cyclists to ride across America, departing end of June/beginning of July. I'm thinking San Francisco, ACA Western Express to Pueblo, then TransAm to the East Coast (or vice versa). My touring experience consists of the Pacific Coast, New Zealand, and Vietnam.

Hi! I'm Rami, a 35-year-old male. I will bike the TransAmerica Trail from east to west ideally starting on July 8, 2018, and would like to travel with other cyclists.

I am an avid birdwatcher and can't wait to begin to see the transition from eastern to western bird species as we ride. For sleeping options, I'd like to camp, stealth-camp, use Couchsurfing and Warm Showers, and sometimes stay at motels. If you are a friendly, kind, and curious cyclist, please send me a note. Email

Summer 2018 TransAm with Rails-to-Trails

Created: Feb 2, 2018

I am a 43-year-old man planning a cross-country bike ride for July–Aug 2018. The route would roughly follow the TransAm, but the idea is to incorporate as many of the fantastic rails-to-trails as possible. Just a few: John Wayne, Couer d'Alenes, Katy Trail, and GAP/C&O. Lodging would be opportunistic: stealth camping, campgrounds, Warmshowers, and hotels. I am not in a rush, but I would like to maintain some momentum, with miles per day likely creeping up as we get in better shape. I am actually a better runner than biker so don't be shy if you would also need some time to develop your biking acumen. I am not a morning person; prefer no 5am starts. I don't mind the heat, but I hate the cold. Sound good? Shoot an email. Email

I'll be riding from my home in Santa Rosa, north of San Francisco, to my 50th high school reunion in Gettysburg, PA, leaving mid-May and arriving in time for the reunion August 17.

I plan to use Adventure Cycling routes, ending up on the new Chicago to New York City route (alternate), which goes right through Gettysburg. This is a self-supported tour, mostly camping. My touring philosophy is that the journey is more important than the destination — I like to stop frequently to experience the people and places we will be riding through.

I am interested in a bikepacking tour out West next summer (2018) and am looking for some company.

Looking forward to hear from you. My mileage is 50-60 a day, I like to sleep in my tent as well as Warmshowers or motels. Email

Portland, ME through Northern New England

Created: Feb 12, 2018

The plan is to leave Portland, Maine, around July 5, and ride west through the White Mountains, then through Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, and through northern New York state into the Great Lakes region. I have one companion, and am looking for 1-3 more. We'll be camping with the occasional "Warm Shower." I even have an extra bike that someone could use who is between 5'8" and 5'11", perfect for a rider for whom not having their own gear is the only barrier. I'm an early 30s teacher in the Boston public schools with moderate touring experience with groups, solo, and guiding teenagers. I've been an outdoor educator and guide the past few summers, doing both international multi-sport trips and a local kayaking program. Email


Oregon and Northern California tour

Created: Feb 22, 2018

I am a 53-year-old female planning to ride from Cannon Beach, Oregon, to the Lost Coast in Ferndale, California. I will begin the ride mid-August. My daughter might meet me to provide vehicle support as I ride the Lost Coast and then cross the state into the Sierras. From there I will ride north along the Sierra route to Crater Lake where I am meeting my son and daughter-in-law and also friends to ride the rim for one of the "car-free" weekends in early September. I am planning 50-70 miles per day and primarily camping. Email

Pacific Coast

Pacific Coast Mid-July to Mid-August

Created: May 21, 2018

I am a 25-year-old female looking for a companion for a 25- to 28-day ride down the Pacific Coast. We'll ride between 30 and 40 miles a day, though I could definitely amp up the mileage if that is important to my companion. The plan is to start the ride in Newport, Oregon, around July 12 and end in San Luis Obispo (or farther south if we get through more miles each day) around August 10. Flexible on the geographic start and end point and the number of daily miles. My start and end dates are more fixed because I am doing this ride before I start law school in Irvine, California, on August 15. I have a lot of experience with tours 5 days and under, but this is my first multi-week tour. I have a great attitude and will be nice to my companion! Email

Pacific Coast Group Trip! Astoria to SF Bay Area

Created: Apr 24, 2018

SEVEN SPOTS LEFT! Group trip gathering on August 31 from Fort Stevens State Park, Oregon (near Astoria, Oregon). Finish 22 days later in the San Francisco Bay Area. We'll spend a day exploring the fort, the wreckage of the Peter Iredale, and the beach there before departing. Come and have the experience of a lifetime as we travel on the most beautiful and easily accessible part of the ACA Pacific Coast Route. All nightly stopover locations will be pre-selected to take advantage of existing hiker/biker and public campgrounds along the way. We plan to travel between 40 and 50 miles per day with four off-days spread across the three weeks allowing for additional exploration, rest, recovery, food and fun! Bring your camera! Email

late summer start

Created: Apr 5, 2018

Hi there! My name is Tricia, I'm 28 years old and I currently live in Southern California. I'm looking for a companion or two to join me in mid-August 2018. Due to other obligations, this is the soonest I can start. I'm considering either a North to South, or South to North Pacific Coast route, or a Southern Tier route, however, I'm not too sure if the conditions are too harsh for that time of year, specifically the desert heat. I'm open to suggestions and routes. Feel free to contact me anytime via email! Email

West Coast, Vancouver to San Diego

I'm a recently retired 65 yo male living in Vancouver and taking the West Coast route through the Olympic Peninsula and down the coast. I expect to start in mid-June and do between 50-100 km per day (30-60 miles) with a rest day every 7th day or so. Will be camping in state campgrounds, occasional motel stays, and maybe some stealth. Open to meeting up along the route I will be taking and can provide more details if you email me. Email

Natchez Trace

Created: May 18, 2018

Bikepackers wanted in Asheville, NC, and TN areas

Created: Oct 2, 2017

I'm a 28 y/o guy enjoying the outdoors and mountain biking since a kid. I'm looking for people to go bikepacking with in the Asheville, NC, area as a primer for longer trips along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. I live in Nashville, TN. These Asheville adventures would be about 30mi/day forest road and singletrack with self-supported camping. I figured that east Tennessee/Asheville general area would be a good place to start. Learning about medicinal plants and testing out gear for longer multiday backpacking trips in the future is the idea that I have in mind along with meeting good people. I'm open to suggestions of where to go and what's out there. Email

Route 66 - April 2018

Created: Jan 10, 2018

I am looking for someone interested in riding Route 66 with me this year. I will be leaving Chicago around April 8, give or take a few days, and making my way west toward Santa Monica following the ACA's Route 66. I have the maps and plan to do about 60–80 miles/day. We wouldn't necessarily need to ride together all day but instead have a meeting point at the end of the day. Everyone rides differently so I don't want to be forced to stick together. I've done several tours and I have the Route 66 maps. Shoot me an email to discuss further! Thanks :) Email

Western Canada

Canada Great Trail West to East

Created: Apr 25, 2018

I am a 55-year-old expat Canadian, now Australian planning to leave the West Coast the end of May. Am hoping to do much of the journey on "the great trail" so am on a mountain bike. I have a few friends from Australia and Canada joining me for parts of my ride but wondered if anyone is interested to join me/us for all or part of it. I am flexible and not obsessive about routing. Am budget conscious but too old to rough it all the time. Will do some camping, some budget accommodation and maybe some Warmshowers. At the moment am planning to finish in Nova Scotia - Clarke's Harbour. I have 3 months, I fly back to Australia August 30. Contact me if you have any interest and we will chat?? Email
