It’s always been there — 4 thousand miles of little diners, breweries, two-lane roads, small towns, and all the cheeseburgers you can eat. Climbs that burn your thighs and descents so long you have to stop to rest your hands and let your face return to normal after grinning for ten miles. America, the whole thing, laid out in front of your handlebars. It’s always been there, just waiting for you.

Self Contained. A multimodal adventure deep in the heart of Alaska beginning with a ferry ride along the coastal tail of this wild state.
Van Supported. This van-supported grand tour of the Atlantic Coast leads past battlefields, our country’s earliest European settlements, and a handful of major cities. So much more than a 63-day, 2,800-mile bike tour up the Eastern Seaboard — this tour is a history lesson on the go, where the past comes to life in dynamic ways.
Van Supported. It won’t take long to realize that “The Divide” simply isn’t enough — this trip’s greatness is on display from the first pedal stroke. Grab your knobbies (yeah, you’re gonna want some bigger tires for this one!), throw your gear in the support van, and prepare for nine unloaded weeks of day after day epic riding and even better views.
Self Contained. Beginning in Adventure Cycling’s hometown of Missoula, Montana, we’ll strike out northward through a continuum of spectacular country, including some of the wildest areas remaining in North America, as we traverse the remote roads of northern British Columbia, the Yukon Territory, and the great state of Alaska.
Van Supported. We'll experience some of the finest terrain and tour some of the coolest cities in the world! From our border with Canada, we'll head south through the lush forests of western Washington before following the Columbia River to the Oregon coast, where we'll encounter some of the nicest state parks in the country.
Self Contained. The Southern Tier has become one of our most popular tours, and it’s easy to see why. This cross-country route is 1,200 miles shorter than either the Northern Tier or TransAm yet offers epic quantities of scenery and shoulder-season sunshine.

Van Supported. This take on a classic route should entice people who love riding trail systems. By riding the entirety of the C&O Canal Trail and Great Allegheny Passage in the east and Katy Trail in the Midwest before meeting up with the famed TransAm Trail in Colorado, this tour will have over 500 miles of bicycle paths and should be an experience of a lifetime for anyone looking for a transcontinental ride.
Self Contained. Thousands of cyclists have pedaled the 4,253-mile TransAmerica Trail and will tell you they captured a lifetime's worth of memories along their tour. For many traveling cyclists who haven't yet experienced the TransAm, it remains the holy grail of American bicycle tours.
Van Supported. Pedal past sand dunes, hot springs, canyons, rock formations, and an incredible variety of plant and animal life as we explore the maze of wildly eroded and colorful badlands that are Death Valley.
Van Supported. Some of the best spring and fall gravel riding in the U.S. can be found outside southern Arizona's small, eclectic town of Patagonia, and we'll hit the dirt on this long-weekend gravel adventure.
Fully Supported. If you’ve been led to believe the Lone Star State is pancake flat, this weeklong bike tour through the rolling Texas Hill Country will prove otherwise. Plus, you’ll love the dazzling displays of spring wildflowers and Texas barbecue.
