Tour Schwagg

February 18, 2014


Nard Clarr, Adventure Cycling Association Life Member and artist based in Colorado, designed the logo for the Adventure Cycling Tours water bottle that each 2014 rider will receive on tour. In 2014, over 1,300 riders will travel with Adventure Cycling Association creating 1,300 new experiences, memories and stories. No trip is the same and every cyclist brings something different back with them from the trip. Hopefully each time you grab the Adventure Cycling Tours water bottle, a great memory, moment, or story will be triggered.


Bonus: The first 30 people to email me at will receive a complimentary Adventure Cycling Tours Cycling Cap. Thanks for supporting Adventure Cycling Association and the Tours Department!

I received one of these at the beginning of my just completed Southern Tier with an AV group. Great design, light and rugged, and a life-saver on those long days through the desert as a reserve store.

One question though: has anybody experienced interior corrosion with these? I've only stored water in mine (Gatorade was mixed and carried in my on-bike plastic water bottles) yet by the end of the tour, there were small white powdery patches inside that I could feel. Its as if there were numerous pinholes in the BPA-free inside coating allowing the water to react with the Aluminum.
