Connect with An Advisor

Thank you for participating in or supporting the 2nd annual Bike Travel Weekend. Over 930 trips with more than 6,900 people throughout the world took place during the weekend of June 2 - 4.

Please share your photos and videos by submitting them here. We’ll add them to the Bike Travel Weekend Flickr album and may even share them on Adventure Cycling’s social media channels. We hope you’ll also continue to share your photos on social media with #biketravelweekend.

We'd love to hear your feedback about Bike Travel Weekend as well as your fun experiences. Please take this short online survey

Save the date for Bike Travel Weekend in 2018—June 1 – 3—and enjoy going on bike overnights all year long!

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

Bike Travel Weekend Advisors are volunteers from all across North America who have graciously agreed to help you plan your trip. They are available to answer your questions by email regarding bike routes, overnight locations, and bicycling equipment suitable for a bike overnight in your specific region. 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 Advisor list is organized alphabetically by state. Each Advisor is listed only once, typically in their home state, but they may be familiar with several regions and states. It may be worthwhile to scan the entire list in order to find an Advisor in your region. You may also notice that some of the more populous regions have several ambassadors, and you should feel free to contact all of them, as each may have their own unique recommendations.
