Family Fun Tours

Reveal your inner kid! A cycling vacation can be one of the best bonding activities that family members can experience. Family fun tours can include all the amenities offered on our fully supported-trips, or you can explore self-contained family touring! Every family fun trip offers opportunities for off-bike access to historical sites, hiking trails, special events, and, of course, ice cream! It’s incredible to see the bonding among families and the youth on these events. Join us for the best kind of family getaway — a family bike tour!

Join Us for a Family Fun Tour and Adventure Cycling will: 

  • Plan your route each day; that’s done for you, in advance, over roads that are scenic and fun to ride.
  • Carry your clothes and camping gear (fully supported only); that’s what the support vehicle is for.
  • Plan and provide professionally catered meals and food stops, beginning with dinner on the first day and ending with lunch on the final day of the tour (fully supported only).
  • Adjust your bike’s brakes or shifters; the professional mechanic can do that for you at camp in the evening.
  • Allow you to ride at a pace that’s comfortable and enjoyable for you and your kids. This allows mom or dad to ride ahead at a faster pace if the rest of the family is feeling the need to take it slow.
  • Have a place in camp to pitch your tent waiting for you no matter when you get there.
  • Plan and supervise family oriented activities such as frisbee golf, board games, nature walks, basketball, talent show, and whitewater rafting.
  • Provide you opportunities to meet other adventurous families. The dynamics of multiple families makes the tour enjoyable for everyone. Friendships forged in the larger groups are regularly cited as some of the greatest benefits of a cycling tour.

Children must be at least eight years old to participate on our fully-supported family fun tours and 12 years old to participate on our self-contained family fun tours.

“We had the time of our lives! I will never forget our trip. I am already looking forward to next year’s family trip.”

Self Contained. The world’s longest mountain bike route turned 20 last year — and you can join the party. Ride the Great Divide’s spectacular Canadian section and see why Outside magazine called it one of “The Best Backcountry Adventure Trips in America.”
