National Bike Travel Weekend included over 900 trips and more than 11,900 participants in all 50 states and over a dozen countries. Thank you for being part of this inaugural weekend of bike overnights, including the more than 220 ambassadors from around the United States.
We’re thrilled to announce Kenny Williams of Sacramento, CA as the winner of the 40th anniversary Adventure Cycling branded Salsa Marrakesh touring bicycle. Kenny was randomly chosen as the winner out of over 900 registrants.
Kenny’s trip with friends included 20 miles on Friday after work to a campground on Folsom Lake and 25 miles of single track around the lake the next day. Because of the heat on Sunday, he made his trip multi-modal and took the light rail back to Sacramento. Find out more about Kenny’s trip details.
