A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to join the fun of Bike Travel Weekend. This quick weekend getaway re-prioritized my perspective of balancing adventure in my life.
Adventure Cycling’s new bicycle route, Chicago to New York City (CNYC), is ripe with historic sites. Here are the 10 we picked, but we need your help adding more historic places to this list. If you know of a must-see historic site riders will find on our route, please add them to the comments. Thank you!
We’re so close! Can you help us reach the $175,000 finish line? Every dollar helps and you could win a Sand County touring bike by Advocate Cycles.
What did you do for Bike Travel Weekend? We want to hear about it and see your photos. Please submit your photos, keep posting them on social media with #biketravelweekend, and give us your feedback and stories by taking this online survey.
