Dear Traveler,

No matter how phenomenal a destination might be, no matter how grand the views or rich the culture, we believe your travel experience is better when shared with others with a common spirit for adventure.

Backroads Singles-Solos trips underscore this philosophy. Not only do we attract fun-loving active travelers who are keen to see the world up close, we also attract the best trip leaders! Filled with passion, expertise and zest for life, Backroads leaders know how to have fun...and it's contagious! Going way beyond incredible biking and hiking, our leaders expertly orchestrate engaging activities—from wildlife-viewing to wine tasting to nightspot-hopping for those who want to spend less time planning and more time LIVING.

We're pleased to introduce you to a few of the leaders who make Backroads trips so memorable. Meet them in person on upcoming Singles-Solos trips this spring.

Hope to see you out there soon,

Adam Ballard Singles-Solos trip leader
Adam Ballard

For Adam, a 4th-year Trip Leader and Yosemite trips guru, a sense of place has always been paramount. So whether he's leading in North, Central or South America, Adam "loves helping guests tap into that element of travel." By sharing stories and songs, bike rides and hikes, he believes a place's essence truly comes to life. "A palpable and emotional experience is something you get in spades with Backroads because you're out there doing that wonderful work of moving through these extraordinarily soulful places."

Travel with Adam on the Wine Country Biking trip in May and on the Singles-Solos Wine Country BikeFest in July.

Kimberly Johnson Singles-Solos trip leader
Kimberly Johnson

"Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living." Backroads leader Kimberly Johnson collects quotes and this one by writer Miriam Beard rings especially true to her. Travel has long been an enriching aspect of her life but now with Backroads she gets to share unique active travel experiences with others from around the world. Bouncing between diverse regions such as Martha's Vineyard, Mexico, Hawaii, Myanmar and Utah, she considers herself a "happy nomad"—with a well-furnished storage unit in Dallas. Kimberly is heading into her fourth season with Backroads and is still having a blast: "Each region fills every one of my senses and never disappoints in the adventures and experiences."

Delve into a new culture with Kimberly on the Bali Biking trip in April.

Drew Smith Singles-Solos trip leader
Drew Smith

Hailing from Buckinghamshire, England, Drew Smith recently escaped the winter by working in Costa Rica and before that, he spent the summer in Catalonia, Spain, leading walking and biking trips. "Catalonia is a place I used to visit frequently with my family on holiday, and having the opportunity to share it with active, enthusiastic and engaging folks is a hugely rewarding experience. The smell of pine needles as you cycle or walk through the mountains down to the Mediterranean Sea is something I will never grow tired of." Drew is now helping to launch our new AndalucĂ­a Biking trip starting this spring.

Explore southern Spain with Drew on the Andalucia Biking trip in April.
