TRIP DESCRIPTION

Thousands have bicycled the 4,234-mile TransAmerica Bicycle Trail since the wheels started rolling in 1976. For those who haven’t yet experienced it, the TransAm remains the ultimate dream adventure, the bike tour of all bicycle tours.

From historic Williamsburg, you’ll pedal westward through the hills of Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, and Missouri. After breezing across the plains, the remainder of your journey will be primarily in the mountains or the broad valleys separating mountain ranges. This is a group experience that not only belongs to you and your fellow riders, but is largely created by you. You will take part in all of your group’s decisions and daily tasks. You’ll also be free every day to shoot photos, chat with locals, and try to find the best ice cream cone in America.

Take the advice of Rick Wojciak, who completed the TransAm tour a few years ago: “There will be other trips, but I don’t think they will be able to top this one ... If you have a sense of adventure and are thinking of doing this ride someday, don’t wait!”
