Become a Tour Leader

We are always searching for energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and experienced tour leaders and staff for all of our tour offerings — leaders who share our philosophy of the leader as a facilitator and see our tours as an opportunity for participant self-discovery. Prospective leaders should have relevant experience such as group recreation leadership, independent travel, group bicycle touring experience, or participation in an Adventure Cycling tour. Do you have what it takes to become one of our expert tour leaders?

All new tour leaders must take one of our Leadership Training Courses (LTC). Once the course is completed, you will be given a reference from your course advisor. Assuming you have received a positive reference, and you have completed a tour leader application as well as CPR and First Aid Certification, you will have a phone interview with our tours director. If invited to join our team, you will be asked to staff or co-lead a tour before becoming a leader or event director.

Once a year, the tours department sends out a Leader Preference Survey asking leaders which tours they are available to lead. Leaders will be asked to include a brief resume with the survey. The Leader Preference Survey is used to place chosen leaders on tours for the coming year.

All of our leaders are independent contractors.
