Parks Partnerships & Resources

Is your park looking for ways to reduce traffic congestion, improve its bicycling opportunities and increase visitation by bicycle? Adventure Cycling can help your park achieve its goals through collaborating on bicycling initiatives such as: 

  • Improving bicycle safety and road conditions
  • Offering car-free opportunities and Bike Your Park Day rides
  • Providing bicycle camping
  • Tracking bicycle visitation
  • Designating U.S. Bicycle Routes through parks
  • Adding amenities like bike parking and repair stations  
  • Creating effective communications to reach the bicycling community

We partner with national and state parks on projects to improve bicycling safety, accessibility, services, infrastructure, and policy. Adventure Cycling and the National Park Service signed an agreement which opens the door for individual park units to partner with us. We are also working with interested state park systems and other public land management agencies.

Email Saara Snow at travel-initiatives@adventurecycling.org to discuss partnership opportunities. Learn more about our recent National Parks and State Parks successes and the soon-to-be-published NPS Active Transportation Guidebook

Bike Your Park Day

Bike Your Park Day is an annual event that inspires thousands of people to bike in or to their parks and public lands on the same day – the last Saturday in September. Rides can be any distance and any type of biking that’s permitted (road, mountain, gravel, etc.). Find resources to plan, register, and promote your ride at www.bikeyourparkday.org.

"Adventure Cycling's technical expertise and insight into the bicycling community has made them a valued partner to the Natchez Trace Parkway's Share the Parkway campaign." –Terry Wildy, Natchez Trace Parkway 

“Biking in Glacier is a premier experience, yet the park knew little about its biking community. Adventure Cycling provided access to the viewpoints of cyclists and information about what makes for good cycling conditions.” –Phil Wilson, Glacier National Park
