Bicycle Adventures

My bike broke down due to derider problem and could not fix. Went thru several cyclometers that malfunctioned while my fellow bikers went ahead. Our guides provided minimal information about the area. Contacted the company in Wash for compensation due to problem. they admitted that my ride was suboptimal due to mechanical failure but since they did not feel that compensation was in order. Of course they never got back with me as I had to initiate follow up. Many other alternatives out there.- Bill M., Triangle Park, NC

Rode Glacier-Banff-Jasper for 8 days with Bicycle Adventures and as an experienced cyclist have huge positives for the tour including - most beautiful scenery outside of Hawaii, great tour guides, wonderful lunches on the road, plenty of fuel for the rides, great ride sheets, plenty of stop opportunities, wonderful breakfasts and dinners, solid bikes, good ride day flexibility, and nice people. Of the 8 nights, 5 were in very nice hotels and the other 3 were 'okay' and 'as good as it gets for how remote the location was' - not a controllable and not a negative, just a reality. Would do it again next week it was that good. -Glenn, Belle Mead, NJ

We have taken three tours with BA in the western USA and enjoyed them thoroughly.  Their guides are superb, equipment is first class, and logistic arrangements are flawless.  This is a very reliable company, well managed, which provides great value. - Larry D., Tacoma, WA

Bicycle Adventures is the official vacation supplier to our household. We have been with them for 6 trips, and each is unique, consistently high quality and great value. Their online materials are spot on, and the catalog describes everything included and all the details. Office staff is always friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the finer details of their routes, restaurants and accommodations. Most importantly, their guides are The Gold Standard of adventure hosts. They know the routes like the back of their hands, and work all week tirelessly so your needs are always met (and they seem to somehow know you had needs you weren't aware of.) They appear when needed, and have an uncanny sense of making sure your are Taken Care Of all the time. Highly, highly recommended! - Richard Glover, Seattle, WA
