An Adventure Cycling fully supported tour is a great choice for the adventure-hungry cyclist who prefers riding with a larger group and a smaller load — the individual who relishes the freedom of riding unencumbered but still enjoys camping and a cycling challenge. The dynamics forged and friendships made in the larger groups are regularly cited as some of the greatest benefits of a cycling tour (group size ranging from 40 to 90 participants).
Our catering staff will provide all meals, and rest stops will be located approximately every 15-20 miles.
Besides lightening your load, the presence of the support vehicle adds a degree of security in that you’ll have a ride available in the case of injury, illness, or mechanical breakdown.
An experienced mechanic follows the route every day in a support vehicle to take care of mechanical emergencies that may arise.
E-bikes are allowed on some of our Fully Supported tours, denoted by this icon:

Self Contained. This spring, you won’t need to worry about traffic as you ride your hybrid or mountain bike some 330 miles on hard-packed, gently graded gravel and dirt trails from the heart of the nation’s capital north to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
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.”
Fully Supported. Beginning in Adventure Cycling’s hometown of Missoula, we’ll cross the Continental Divide more than once as we ride along many of the rivers that run through Western Montana and visit small towns, soak in few hot springs, and take in massive views under the Big Sky!
