Van Supported Tours

You want fun, good food, gear-free riding, and other like-minded people to share the road? Then consider one of our popular van-supported tours. Adventure Cycling’s van-supported tours offer all the thrills of a classic, self-contained tour: A group of around 14 riders, camping, and shared group cooking. But you’ll spend your riding days free of personal and group gear since we provide a van to do all the heavy lifting, and two experienced guides will make your tour one to remember. The group may also use the support van to take side trips that would not be reachable otherwise. We offer van-supported versions of our epic, cross-country adventures and many one- to two-week tours. We include occasional motel overnights (one every 10 days) on longer trips.

“The route and terrain were fantastic, offering many miles of solitude and quiet. I also really enjoyed the group — all very friendly and quite collaborative as a new found travel family.” — 2017 Tour Participant
