Free Registration for the second annual Bike Travel Weekend during the weekend of June 2–4 is open. Registration is easy and doesn’t cost a thing. Plus, everyone who registers is a winner. Here’s why:
You get to go on a bike overnight. When you register, you commit to going on a bike overnight of your choice on June 2–4. That’s right ... you pick your bike overnight location (anywhere in the world), the mileage (from 1 mile to 100 miles), the type of overnight stay (from camping to a fancy hotel), your adventure companions (go solo, with friends, or with a big group), and brewery, diner, or ice cream stops. It’s YOUR trip, so you have the freedom to come up with the itinerary and all of the details.
Get a sticker! We’ll mail a sticker to everyone who signs up for Bike Travel Weekend.
Win a bike and a trip to Glacier Park on Amtrak! You’ll automatically be entered in two drawings, and you could win big. Everyone who registers by May 22, will be entered in a drawing to win a Seldom Seen bike from Advocate Cycles and a trip for two, with bikes, to Glacier National Park on Amtrak’s Empire Builder. Register for Bike Your Park Day on September 30 and get a second entry for these prizes. Bike Your Park Day registration will open by March 15.
Volunteer and get more swag. Take two minutes to fill out the Bike Travel Weekend and Bike Your Park Day Volunteer Interest Form and apply to volunteer for the events. Volunteer from anywhere in the world as an Advisor (be a resource for people who are planning their Bike Travel Weekend trips) and/or an Influencer (help promote Bike Travel Weekend). You don’t have to be available during the events or even plan to participate in the events as most of the volunteer opportunities occur before the events. Everyone who volunteers will receive a Bike Travel Weekend head tube badge in the mail as a thank you gift.
