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.
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. Meanwhile, our knowledgeable, experienced leaders can share information about the area you’re cycling through and solve any problems or concerns that may arise — remember, this is a vacation!
Our fully supported tours occupy a special niche in the universe of supported bicycle tours: All personal and group gear is transported daily by a vehicle, but home on most nights is a “room with plenty of elbow room” — under the stars, that is, at a nice campsite. Some trips have occasional indoor overnights included in the tour price, and additional indoor options are usually available at the rider’s own expense.
“The caterers were exceptional! Gourmet dinners were awesome. Their service and menu are worthy of 4-star cuisine recognition. The staff were tremendous as well. The event director has put together a great tour, and the director built an excellent team. Positive reinforcement, genuine care and concern, and spot-on advice. The system satisfactorily delivered to me the essential information within 24 hours of my signing up. The Google group was a great resource to review and see previous questions/issues addressed. Bottom line: I will likely do this tour as well as the North Carolina tour in the future.”

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!
