Explore the West on Two Wheels

By wpdev January 20, 2011

We have offered superb bicycle touring and mountain biking trips for young adults since 1980.  Our carefully crafted bicycling adventures on the Pacific Coast, the Puget Sound and the Rocky Mountains are designed for young adults who seek challenge and personal growth within a non-competitive, nurturing and wholesome environment. No experience or equipment is necessary; we provide all bicycles, helmets and touring-specific equipment such as saddle bags.

Pacific Coast Bike: Ride from Seattle to San Fransisco while enjoying a range of environments and cultures along the scenic coast.
Puget Sound Bike: Combine bikes and ferry boats for an island hopping adventure through the coastal waterways of Washington and British Columbia.
Colorado Utah Mountain Bike: Learn off-road riding skills in the best and most famous mountain biking locations in the world.

Our self-supported bike touring trips on the Puget Sound and the Pacific Coast are planned to allow for peaceful daily rides that make stops at interesting places along the way. We’ll also take time out for fun activities. For example, we whitewater raft through the redwoods of northern California and sea kayak with whales in the San Juan Islands of the Puget Sound. Most afternoons, we’ll enjoy jumping into the ocean before preparing a hearty dinner in our scenic, waterfront campsites.

Our van-supported Colorado Utah Mountain Biking Adventure teaches mountain biking and leadership skills to both new and experienced riders in the iconographic off-road destinations of the Rocky Mountain West — places like Moab, Utah and Breckenridge, Colorado.

All of our biking adventures provide bicycles and helmets, and our touring programs include bike racks and saddle bags. No prior experience is necessary, just the desire to experience new activities and environments with a great group of people your own age. For more information about our coastal touring and mountain biking opportunities, please call 800-533-2281. I look forward to speaking with you about the best summer of your life.
