Celebrate the Stars and Stripes on Two Wheels with Five Great Trips

July 4, 2017

While we’ve grown from our Bikecentenial roots, we continue to offer opportunities sure to have the Star-Spangled Banner playing in your head. Like these five guided tours ...

1 Mid-Atlantic Countryside

Take a trip through early America on our Mid-Atlantic Countryside tour. Journey through where it all began, visiting historic highlights like Valley Forge National Park, as well as soaking up Revolutionary and Civil War lore.

2 C&O Canal/GAP 

Our C&O Canal/GAP tour journeys from the political heart of the country in Washington, DC, and everything the National Mall has to offer, to the great city of Pittsburgh, traveling the former lifelines to early settlers, the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal and the Great Allegheny Passage.

3 Route 66: The Mother Road Westward

Immerse yourself in the “Main Street of America” and its role in the American Dream. Our guided tour, Bike Route 66: The Mother Road Westward, rolls from Chicago to Santa Monica on a route that carried the hopes and dreams of thousands of Americans.

4 National Parks

Relax in “America’s Best Idea,” national parks! Take a spin through Zion, Bryce, and Cedar Breaks as part of our Utah Parks tour, or take the path less traveled, mountain biking through the Grand Canyon.

5 Pacific Coast

Wind your way down the Pacific Coast, riding either our Pacific Coast Central tour in mid September or our Pacific Coast South in the first half of October, exploring the American beauty of redwood forests, magnificent ocean views, and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

No matter what you do or where you go, get out and explore our great nation! Adventure Cycling still has a handful of Guided Tours left this summer and fall — join us for an adventure!
