Mission in Action

  • Delta Airlines announced that it will now treat bicycles like other checked baggage, without the extra $150 fee. There are still weight and size restrictions, but the new policy will make it easier to bring your bike with you.

  • The following Bike Shops believe in the Mission of the Adventure Cycling Association and have supported the organization by becoming a member shop. If you are looking for a bike shop in your current location, please give one of our supporting shops a try.

  • It gives me great satisfaction to report that 2018 was among the most important years in Adventure Cycling’s history, both in terms of accomplishments and transformation. Check out our most recent annual report to see more.

  • U.S. Bicycle Route 1 provides 199 miles of bike-friendly access to the Georgia coast. The route rolls through the historic streets of Savannah and connects to over 20 communities and several barrier islands. Digital maps are available from our website.

  • More than 6,000 people went on over 500 trips throughout the world during the fourth annual Bike Travel Weekend, May 31 - June 2. Check out photos from the weekend on the Bike Travel Weekend Facebook page. Save the date for next year’s Bike Travel Weekend, June 5 – 7, 2020.

“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 newfound travel family.”
