    My wife and I have taken 14 bike trips over the past 6 years with a variety of the touring companies (on this site) and almost all of the trips have been great experiences in every way. Bicycle Adventures (BA) may be a smaller/regional company, but they do everything as well or better than the larger companies. We have taken 2 trips with BA (Crater Lake and Death Valley) and are scheduled for more (Badlands of South Dakota and France by barge and bike). Everything the company does, it does carefully and thoughtfully. Planning and execution of all trip days is excellent. I feel that BA makes the best and fullest use of each travel day. There is no wasted time. The fellow travelers tend to be very experienced with bike touring and are calm, pleasant and capable. The leaders we have had have been models of what guides can and should be – kind, thoughtful, capable, confident, organized, athletic, experienced, etc.! The back office is excellent and friendly — no rush — ask your questions. The pre-trip written materials are just right. The road food and the restaurants are perfect and the road bikes are high quality. A few companies put more emphasis on gourmet dining and exquisite hotels — and we love that too (but you pay more for it). While not “luxe,” the BA hotels are fine and interesting. BA should be at the top of your list when scouting for your next trip.

    Enjoyed another great trip with Bicycle Adventures this month March 2020 ahead of the quarantine!! We did the Sonora Desert Tour with Spencer Harding and Kevin. Trip was very well run, and very enjoyable. I had never seen the Sonoran Desert before. This guides were EXCELLENT- very professional, always “on” and ensured that everything ran smoothly. They seemed able to cater to each guest ensuring individual needs were met, abilities supported. The accommodation at Ventana Canyon Resort was lovely as was the accommodation at Casa San Pedro, a smaller family run guest house. The meals were very good, the lunches that Kevin and Spencer made for us were perfect- healthy with lots of fresh produce as well as snacks and treats. Our group of 10 riders gelled well. We have ridden once before with Spencer – Bryce Zion TRip – andI wish to commend his skill as a guide and tour leader. Spencer goes over and above. This trip when my own clip in pedal broke with a piece tearing off, he took the pedal home and fixed it replacing the broken piece with a part from bike parts that he had at home!! Enabling me to continue to ride with my clipped in shoes (rather than having to ride in my running shoes). He even offered to take laundry to his home for a guest (declined!). The van was comfortable, both guides were great drivers and great company-highly recommend BA – great value for a wonderful trip

    I’ve now taken about ten trips with BA, so you know I must like the company. I don’t just like the company; I LOVE the company. I’ve ridden a bike for over 40 years and take 1-2 bike trips a year, so I’ve taken many, many trips. This company is run exactly the way I’d run a company if I ran a bike touring company. Lodging and meals are first rate. The guides are uniformly excellent. The trip planning is just perfect. You will see all that the area has to offer; you would never be able to see as much if you went on your own, because BA (a) knows the areas it offers tours in inside and out, and (b) does exceptional planning. Lunch is one example. Instead of eating in a restaurant, which is time-consuming during the day, each day the guides set up lunch outdoors at some pretty location along the day’s route, with a two-hour window (say, 11:00 to 1:00). They can accommodate all food preferences, allergies, etc. without adversely affecting what YOU will be eating. And the lunches are always great. The office staff (ask for Julie) provides superb support, particularly with respect to pre- and post-trip arrangements. For example, I was in Portland for a day or two between trips, and I asked what I should see and do that day and how to do it. I got the best advice and had a day I’ll always remember. I’d say my favorite trips were Bryce-Zion (if you don’t see these parks in your lifetime, shame on you), Crater Lake and the Canadian Rockies (you will never see any better scenery anywhere, and I’ve been to many beautiful places), and the San Juan Islands (amazing restaurants–and I live in a great restaurant city–and a wonderful place to ride). They’ll provide you with a high quality bike and set it up as you request. And don’t be shy about asking for things. When I was in Bryce, the heat was really getting to me, so I asked the guides to buy some V-8 juice so I could minimize dehydration, and within a day I had my own case of V-8. The guides do everything they can to accommodate your needs and preferences.
