This year, you're going for it — the big, cross-country bike pilgrimage. Make the commitment. You'll have nothing to regret when all's said and done and a lifetime's worth of stories to tell. We’re talking about a 28- to 93-day, self-contained or van-supported adventure, an Adventure Cycling Epic Tour. Since 1976, we’ve made people’s dreams a reality. A small team with a qualified leader, shared gear, and one goal can make dreams come true. This is your year to grab your bike and go on an epic adventure that will leave you with a lifetime of memories.

Self Contained. A multimoldal adventure deep in the heart of Alaska beginning with a ferry ride along the costal tail of this wild state.
Self Contained. Explore the vast wilderness of the Interior of Alaska by bike. Starting in Anchorage, we will cover over a thousand miles, riding in a grand counterclockwise loop around this spectacular state and moving from lush farmlands to glacial mountain landscapes.
Van Supported. It won’t take long to realize that “The Divide” simply isn’t enough — this trip’s greatness is on display from the first pedal stroke. Grab your knobbies (yeah, you’re gonna want some bigger tires for this one!), throw your gear in the support van, and prepare for nine unloaded weeks of day after day epic riding and even better views.
Self Contained. Beginning in Adventure Cycling’s hometown of Missoula, Montana, we’ll strike out northward through a continuum of spectacular country, including some of the wildest areas remaining in North America, as we traverse the remote roads of northern British Columbia, the Yukon Territory, and the great state of Alaska.
Van Supported. We'll experience some of the finest terrain and tour some of the coolest cities in the world! From our border with Canada, we'll head south through the lush forests of western Washington before following the Columbia River to the Oregon coast, where we'll encounter some of the nicest state parks in the country.
Van Supported. The Southern Tier has become one of our most popular tours, and it's easy to see why. This cross-country route is 1,200 miles shorter than either the Northern Tier or TransAm yet offers epic quantities of scenery and shoulder-season sunshine.
Van Supported. This take on a classic route should entice people who love riding trail systems. By riding the entirety of the C&O Canal Trail and Great Allegheny Passage in the east and Katy Trail in the Midwest before meeting up with the famed TransAm Trail in Colorado, this tour will have over 500 miles of bicycle paths and should be an experience of a lifetime for anyone looking for a transcontinental ride.
Self Contained. Lake Champlain and the picturesque views that it offers is the perfect spot for a relaxed, long-weekend getaway. By bike and boat, we'll loop around the lake, catching views and creating memories from both Vermont and New York.
Fully Supported. Come experience cycling the best of the Southeast. Travel along the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway from Ridgeland to Natchez, a Southern jewel of a town. You’ll visit historic sites, enjoy scenic back road riding, and eat some spectacular Southern food!
Self Contained. Crisp mountain air, stunning vistas, and a pristine alpine lake — what more could you want out of an epic weekend on two wheels? On this long weekend tour, we’ll enjoy the altitude of the Sierra Nevadas as we circumnavigate the stunning Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America!
