Finding Your Dream Ride

December 3, 2012

With 73 tours being offered by Adventure Cycling Association in 2013, it's easy to find your dream ride. Most people choose their dream ride by date or location; but sometimes mileage, touring style, or even difficulty level is more important. We have provided a tool called Compare All Tours to help you find your dream ride. You can also look on our Guided Tours page.

Click on any of the column headers in this matrix: such as, Start Date, Location, Accommodations, Level of Support, or Mileage to sort all the tours. Just click on the column header and it will automatically sort. For example, if you click on Start Date, the tours will be arranged in ascending order of start date (or reverse order if you like, just click again to reverse the order!).

Click on any of the upper-level tour types at the top of the Compare All Tours Matrix and you can sort tours by full-supported, van-supported, family, self-contained, self-contained inn-to-inn, and education, or look at them all together. This display will show you only those tours in each particular category, and you can still arrange these tours by the column headers. So if you were only interested in van-supported and in California, you would click on van-supported then the column header -- State -- then you will see an alphabetized arrangement by state of all the van-supported tours offered by Adventure Cycling.


Of course you can also browse every page of our Tours Catalog and picture yourself riding in each location ... that is my favorite way to find an awesome tour.

How do I find a ride on a specific date. Location isn't as important to me as the dates are. Do you beak down by dates, as well as location? I am specifically looking for a ride to join this Labor day, Sept 3-10, 2016.
