Value... that's what you get when you take a Bicycle Adventures tour. First-class lodging and dining, top-quality bicycles, full van support, regional expertise, outstanding guides. All combined to give you a fun, active, safe, scenic, and absolutely care-free vacation.
When we say it's a six-day tour, we mean six active days - no wasted "meeting" day at the beginning and "travel" day at the end. We have activities planned on each day of your trip, even on layover days - you can choose to do as much or as little as you wish.
Most of tours have a maximum of 13 guests with two tour leaders. This allows us to dine and stay in some exclusive locations. Occasionally, we will run groups up 18 or 24 people. This is rare but when we do we also double the support by adding a second van and two more tour guides, essentially running two trips simultaneously. This way we are able to continue to provide outstanding personal service.
From your first call to the office to the last day of your tour, you'll be well taken care of. Our office staff is happy to answer all of your questions and help you work out scheduling or travel problems. Our guides are mature professionals experienced at leading our trips. They have the authority and responsibility to adjust the daily schedule and route to better match the interests of your group. Our leaders go out of their way to help you, whether it's making sure your favorite beverage is stocked in the cooler, giving you a lift in the van, or planning a surprise birthday party for your spouse. Your Head Guide will call you the week before your tour starts to introduce him/her self, verify pickup and bike information, and answer any last-minute questions. Personal contact. Personal service.
We specialize in multisport and bicycling vacations in the western United States and Canada, Hawaii, and New Zealand. We have kept our expertise focused on select regions, rather than spreading ourselves thin all over the world. We live here and know these areas well.
With 30 years of experience under our belt, we know what makes an outstanding vacation. Owner and president Todd Starnes personally joins four to six trips each year as a guest to re-evaluate lodging, dining, and routes, and to speak directly with our customers as they experience a Bicycle Adventure. Since 1984, our mission has remained simple: provide exceptional active vacations with superior personal service. Read a letter from Todd Starnes.

Although our guests typically feel like every tour is customized just for them, we are particularly proud of our ability to design custom tours for your entire crew. Just the right place to stay, cuisine to satisfy any travelers appetite along with on the bike and off the bike activities that will hard to forget. Best of all we build the tour to fit your pocketbook as well.
The hotels, inns, and B&Bs we use are always among the finest the area has to offer. Our smaller group sizes allow us to stay at some award-winning places that can't handle groups of 25 or more. We work closely with the innkeepers to make sure they understand your needs and ours, whether that is having a place to store your bike, an early morning breakfast or a convenient place to park the van, they are as committed to your vacation experience as we are.
At most restaurants, you are not limited to pre-selected "tour menus." You enjoy whatever you like from the restaurant's full menu. Everything is included, except alcohol - even appetizers, soups, salads, desserts, and all non-alcoholic beverages. Between meals, we always have plenty of fruit, snacks, and drinks available in the van, and we always host a wine and cheese party during the course of the trip. We provide all meals except one dinner on most trips - and two lunches and two dinners on our casual tours. Even though we are not hosting the dinner, our guides will have local recommendations, whether you want a romantic getaway for two, dinner with a group or a quick bite so you can return to your room and relax the night away.
