Since 1984. The company was founded by Bob Clark in order to share his passion for cycling and travel. Todd Starnes, who has owned the company since 2008, joins 6 - 10 trips each year to monitor quality and scout new adventures.
Yes! You have a choice of road bike (downturned handlebars) or hybrid bike (straight handlebars) for your upcoming trip. Mountain bikes are included for mountain biking trips. We choose the initial frame size by asking for your height and an inseam measurement that reaches all the way to the floor, then do the final fitting adjustments when we meet you for the trip start. For more info on our bikes, click here.
Yes! We have both. You may request an electric-assist bike to zoom up those hills. The fee is an additional $300. If you'd like to request a tandem for the week, it's an additional $500.
When we put our schedule together, weather gets considerable attention. Tours are scheduled to depart at a time of year that will capitalize on cycling in good weather conditions.
For instance, Washington State gets most of its rainfall between October and May, so we schedule these trips from June - August. Conversely, Bryce & Zion (Utah) are often uncomfortably hot July through August, so we offer these tours in early spring and fall.
Some folks want tours with plenty of elevation gain. We guide them towards the Epic series and the Classic Plus tour series. For a lot of us, though, hills can be a concern. Looking at a particular tour and want to know more? Just call us at 800.443.6060 - we're happy to let you know what to expect.
Like you, your fellow travelers will have a spirit for adventure and a willingness to meet others. Groups bond very fast, and you'll leave your tour having made several new friends. Often people who meet on a tour return together for another great adventure.
Typically our groups are comprised of 60% couples / 40% solo guests; 49% percent males and 51% females. And we offer special tours designed solely for families.

Of course you want to share these incredible destinations with your non-cycling partner. There are always options for other activities. Depending on the tour location, they vary: hiking, a spa visit, wine tasting or simply boosting ahead to that terrific beach might be alternatives. Just ask us when you call; we'll be happy to fill you in on the details.

Tipping tour guides at the end of the trip is at your discretion. Since guests often ask us for guidance in this area, we suggest around $15 - $30 per day, per guide, per person as an appropriate gratuity for excellent service. Our staff works as a team, and it is standard practice for gratuities to be given to the head guide, who divides them equally among all Bicycle Adventures guides on any given trip.
As a past Bicycle Adventures guest, we have a special offer just for you! Bring a friend who's never traveled with us on your next Bicycle Adventure, and take 50% off your tour price! OK, here's the fine print stuff: You must bring a friend who has never traveled with us before and the two of you must travel together (you said you two were friends, not us!) Your friend must be paying full price for the tour, but it's OK with us if you decide to share your good fortune. Offer is good for any future tours. Please note: this offer is not valid with any other promotions or discounts.
Yes! We are currently recruiting Tour Guides for our 2015 season. We are looking for professional, fun-loving, hardworking, outdoorsy individuals who are passionate about bicycle touring.
