What is the Adventure Cycling Association?

Adventure Cycling Association's nonprofit mission is to inspire people of all ages to travel by bicycle for fitness, fun, and self-discovery. Established in 1973 as Bikecentennial, Adventure Cycling is the premier bicycle travel organization in North America with 44,700 members nationwide.

We research and produce cycling maps for our Adventure Cycling Route Network, one of the largest route networks in the world at 40,699 miles (and growing). We publish Adventure Cyclist magazine for our membership, lead bike tours, work on bicycle advocacy projects such as the U.S. Bicycle Route System, sell bike travel gear, and provide trip planning resources for bicycle travelers.

As a nonprofit organization, all proceeds from tours, sales, and membership go directly back into supporting our mission and programs. Adventure Cycling is headquartered in Missoula, Montana.
