“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” - Jack Kerouac, On the Road
About to graduate college and hesitant to join that cubicle life? Or maybe you’re a couple years into the rat race and looking for a change of pace. Plug a little gap in your summer. We’re lookin’ to put together a group of young folks (18-35 years old) for an epic ride across our great continent. The spreadsheets can wait. Spend a few months basking in the life-changing grandeur of the Rocky Mountains or the expanse of the TransAmerica Route, breathe the freshest air this green Earth has to offer; find a little perspective on your place in it.

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.
Fully Supported. The Blue Ridge Parkway stretches for 469 miles, from North Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the south to Waynesboro, Virginia, in the north. On our Blue Ridge Bliss tour, you’ll explore more than 300 of the very best of those miles. In fact, the North Carolina mountains offer some of the best cycling in the country.
