Connect with Bike Travel Weekend Advisors for bike travel advice and resources in your area.

Bike Travel Weekend Advisors are volunteers who have graciously agreed to provide bike-travel resources specific to your area. They may even help you plan your trip! Email an Advisor in your area to ask about bike routes, overnight locations, and gear. Or just make a new friend with someone in your area who shares your interest in bike travel. Advisors have a range of experience levels within this group, but all of them are bursting with local bike-travel knowledge and are excited to share their advice with you.

The list of Bike Travel Weekend Advisors is organized alphabetically by state. Feel free to contact more than one Advisor as each may have their own unique recommendations.
