Bike Tours & Guided Cycling Trips

Backroads was born from the idea that the absolute best way to see a new place, a new landscape, a new corner of the world, was on the seat of a bike. Since 1979, our bike tours have been the core of who we are, and we’ve only gotten better with time. Our thoughtfully crafted cycling vacations have been perfected with decades of experience—from the Rocky Mountains to the Tuscan countryside to the rural villages of Vietnam. Our bike trips are led by expert Trip Leaders who know the most scenic biking routes—far from the crowds and immersed in the beauty of the region you’ve come to discover. Whether it’s wide-open vistas, quaint local towns or simply one thrilling or leisurely bike ride after another, a Backroads bike tour will forever raise the bar on what an active vacation can be.  

Learn more about what you can expect when joining us on a biking tour, and check out our fleet of custom-built titanium bikes as well as our pro carbon option from Cannondale.
