Adventure Cycling Names Ten Top Touring Areas in North America

New, annual feature in Adventure Cyclist magazine profiles the continent's best bicycle travel destinations

Missoula, Mont. Adventure Cyclist magazine has your next cycling destination. Ten of them, in fact. In its inaugural "Ten Top Touring Areas" feature, Adventure Cyclist (Adventure Cycling Association's bicycle travel publication) highlights ten of the finest cycling destinations in North America.

From the well known (Blue Ridge Parkway) to the undiscovered (Yukon's Canol Road), these top bike travel areas were selected for their spectacular scenery and abundance of world-class cycling opportunities. Offering general descriptions of weeklong rides and a list of key contacts for each area, the "Ten Top Touring Areas" feature is an invaluable planning aid for bicycle adventure hounds everywhere.

"We're stoked to spread the word on these great places to ride," says Aaron Teasdale, Deputy Editor of Adventure Cyclist and the editor of the "Ten Top Touring Areas" feature. "With interest in bicycle travel at an all time high, we wanted to spotlight the best places for people to head out for a week and ride."

Featured in the January 2008 edition of Adventure Cyclist, the full article can be downloaded as a PDF here:

The range of featured rides, like bicycle travel itself, is deliciously diverse. Road cyclists have a seaside joyride down the California coast and the quad-busting challenges of New Hampshire's White Mountains. For mountain bikers, there is the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Montana section of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. Beginners can head for the flat and history-rich pathways of the C&O Canal Towpath, while experts can test themselves on the mountains and tunnels of the Blue Ridge Parkway. These are mouth-watering rides from every corner of the continent described by area experts and illustrated with spectacular images from some of cycling's top photographers.

Though not typically prone to top ten lists, Adventure Cyclist took the plunge with "Ten Top Touring Areas" to inspire cyclists of all experience levels to get out and ride for their next vacation. With high fuel prices, concerns about climate change, and a desire for more adventurous, authentic travel experiences, more and more people are traveling by bicycle. Now, Adventure Cyclist magazine is making it easier than ever to find the best places to ride.

Adventure Cyclist is the member publication of the Adventure Cycling Association, North America's largest bicycling membership organization. Besides its unique and wide-ranging travel stories, it features photo essays, a stable of expert columnists, bike reviews, and it's annual "Touring Bike Buyer's Guide."
