Discover and explore what we ultimately strive for in a cycling vacation–which is to simply “Pedal Happy”.

Washington State has the best mountain biking in the world. Diverse trails, connection to a vibrant natural world and breathtaking scenery make for a lifetime’s worth of experiences. Ride with us! Spend 5 days here in the Cascades tackling every kind of terrain you can imagine. This tour is designed for advanced riders: Big climbs, big descents. A whole day riding the lifts and barreling the downhills, flow trails, ladders and features at Stevens Pass Bike Park. Stay in Leavenworth, the geographic center of the state. Here, Cascade peaks shoot skyward to the west and taper into low hills to the east. Wild whitewater flows through deep valleys, dumping into the Columbia River en route to the Pacific Ocean. Leavenworth, a small Bavarian-themed mountain town tucked into the eastern slope of the Cascades, offers everything to support the outdoor adventurer. Food, beer, more food – and great lodging, all within walking/riding distance of the shops, pubs, and trails.

This tour is operated under special use permit/s with the Wenatchee National Forest. Bicycle Adventures is an equal opportunity provider.

Double black diamond, intermediate, easy, advanced flow trails, berms – it’s all playground. Take the chair lift to the top while deciding which trail to chase down next. Then do it again. Grab lunch whenever you like at one of the resort’s many restaurants. Then ride until your perma-grin is ready to head back to town.
