Your Trip at Your Pace
Every Backroads trip is designed to appeal to a wide variety of fitness levels, whether you're newly active or an uber athlete. We know your pace may vary from one day to the next—and your traveling companion's may vary from yours. In addition to unparalleled vehicle support, we present a range of mileage options—always with detailed directions that allow you to be entirely self-guided or ride/hike with other guests of your pace. Each day you decide what and how much you want to do.
We understand how precious your time is and that feeling tied to a rigid program isn't what you had in mind. So we design trips with flexible itineraries and plenty of options that let you personalize each day. And our leaders take the time to understand your idea of the perfect day and help to make it happen.
