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.
“Every other second there was a photo opportunity. I love climbing so I loved this route. And although the group was small, it created a greater sense of camaraderie among the participants. The variety of scenery was spectacular as well. It was amazing to see, day by day, forest streams and waterfalls turning slowly and spectacularly into apple orchards and vineyards; dry canyon flats turning into mile-high mountain passes; charcoal forests giving way to fields of raspberries and cold winds from the coast. And Paradise lived up to the name!” — 2015 Tour Participant
