Mission in Action

  • Adventure Cycling Association recently completed its five-year strategic plan, and we want your feedback on how we can build a Bike Travel Experience program and grow the bike travel community. Please fill out this short survey.

  • Free your daily stresses by exploring parks and public lands by bicycle with thousands of others throughout the world on the same day, Bike Your Park Day on September 28. Everyone who registers will be entered to win a bike and will get a sticker in the mail.

  • A new five year strategic plan was adopted to steer the organization from 2018 to 2023. This includes a major shift in emphasis that transforms Adventure Cycling from being America’s bicycle travel experts to catalyzing and supporting an expansive and interactive bicycle travel community in North America.

  • Self-contained camping tours have been an Adventure Cycling tradition for 40 years. Relying on your own power, cooking your own meals, and carrying your “home” with you — it’s a sense of freedom that must be experienced to be understood.

“This trip was an experience of self-discovery. The most challenging piece for me was getting over my fear of the unknown. I loved this new experience and look forward to the next trip.”
Faye Jarow – Santa Monica, CA
