Bike Travel Weekend and Bike Your Park Day Advisors are volunteers from all over the world who can help you plan your event, whether it’s virtual or an in-person ride. They are available to answer your questions by email regarding local bike routes and riding in parks and public lands. They may even help you plan your event! Email an Advisor in your area to ask about bike routes, overnight locations, and gear. Or just make a new friend with someone in your area who shares your interest in bicycling. 

The list of Bike Travel Weekend and Bike Your Park Day Advisors is organized alphabetically by state. Feel free to contact more than one Advisor as each may have their own unique recommendations.
