Northern Tier Ride Prep: Who’s With Us?

How ironic. Adventure Cycling Association’s Bike Travel Weekend coincides with the very first day of our coast to coast ride.

What is Bike Travel Weekend? It’s a weekend set aside to encourage people of any age, any cycling experience, throughout the world to go on a one or two night bicycle trip with friends, family or even solo to a campground, hotel, cabin, friend’s house, whatever. The idea is to promote bicycling as a healthy, sustainable way to travel and have fun.  This is the third year Adventure Cycling has sponsored the event.

This year there are over 500 rides registered with 6,100 participants.  Here’s your official invitation to join us on Bike Travel Weekend or any part of our coast to coast ride. Don’t worry, Tom is taking the lead on navigation. #debsalwayslost

If Washington state isn’t in your summer travel plans maybe there’s a bike trip closer to you.

The Central Indiana Bicycling Association (CIBA) has a ride registered right here in central Indiana. Whether you’re a beginning bike traveler with lots to learn or a seasoned veteran with lots to share, consider participating.  Your contact to sign up is Nathan Dinges, neddingo21@me.com

Are the reserved campsites sweet or what? Nathan even has a limited amount of gear for you to borrow.

And, if you register and ride, you’re eligible to win a bike and Amtrak tickets to Glacier National Park.  Check it out here. Riding the Amtrak Empire Builder is an unforgettable experience. #beenthere #donethat

PS: As of April 28th, they are looking for ride leaders in North Dakota and Hawaii, the only states not yet represented in Bike Travel Weekend, so if ya know someone….

Whether you join us, CIBA, or do your own thing on Bike Travel Weekend, post pics using these hashtags because as the saying goes, “pics or it didn’t happen.”
