Help raise money for Adventure Cycling Association.

“For three months, we will cycle across the United States via an unconventional route — a combination of dirt roads, trails, forest tracks, wooded paths, and country roads.”
This crew set out to raise funds and awareness to help empower young adults left behind by traditional education systems.

My wife and I signed up and paid $3800 for the Western Canada Bike Tour that started on July 18th and went thru August 2nd. We flew into Spokane WA on July 17th and we were going to take the Amtrak tr...ain for the final leg to Whitefish Mt where the tour was to start. Upon arriving in Spokane my wife received a call from her brother that her dad was in critical condition and probably wouldn't live more than a few days. We notified the tour leader and then booked a flight to spend time with her dad during his last days. After returning home we contacted Adventure Cycling(AC) and asked them to send us our maps and tour information that we had paid for. We received an email from Arlen Hall saying we wouldn't be receiving the material we paid for because we had to cancel our trip. We knew we wouldn't receive a refund per their refund policy and we did buy trip insurance but that doesn't cover all of our expenses such as airfare. For them to not send us our maps and other trip information that they hand out at the beginning of the tour is beyond belief.They got to keep the entire $3800 even though much of that money went unspent. We've been members of AC for many years and between my wife and I have gone on 5 trips and this is how they treat us. In the past we have recommended AC to many of our friends and relatives. Needless to say we will not be doing any more AC bike trips, recommending them to others or renewing our membership. In addition to losing a father, we have to deal with all the paperwork for the trip insurance and the people from a non-profit organization that's become so focused on fundraising that they no longer consider how to best serve their members.

Organization needs more thorough thought. They've closed existing hosts upon cyclists' word only without contacting the hosts by phone first before omitting them from the maps (they have their phone ...numbers which are listed on the map which could be easily verified). Absolutely no options for returns to those taking the paid tour routes - even in the event of deaths. They reserve the right to cancel reservations even without notification, etc.... See More

Love the idea, but I certainly won't be buying another map until the apps are completed. Was really disappointed to buy maps this year and find that they are 2 years old and horribly outdated. I hope ...the apps allow for cyclist feedback so other tourists can know which services have closed, where there are new services and when there's a better route than the suggested. I would have missed the prettiest part of Montana if I had stayed on route. Saved 50 miles too. See More

I bought the original Bike Centennial Trans-America map books, but sadly, life, work, etc. never gave me the time to take the trip. ACA and Adventure Cyclist keep my motivation high to keep the goal ...of completing that cross country tour. I still ride and tour, and am nearing retirement age (65.5 for me living in Germany.). The first thing I'm going to do is come back to the States and finally realize my dream. The organization and the magazine help me keep that goal in focus. Thanks. See More

Great source of info for touring on the bike! Makes me want to road ride, and coming from an avid mountain biker, that says something.

The maps look great but so SO expensive if you have to buy a bunch of them, there should be some sort of deal if you buy 5+ or 8+

This is a post review from 1995. I bought the Santa Fe Trail by bicycle book from ASA. Also complete paniers and camping gear. Fantastic then and I couldn't imagine now.
