2022 marks a milestone for Pedalers, 35 years of handcrafting distinctive and unique cycling tours to lesser known destinations. Since 1987 we have run free of the pack, developing bicycle tours to exotic places like Thailand, French Polynesia, Japan, while all of our compatriots were offering the same old same old in the wine regions of California, rural Vermont and such. Pedalers also broke from the pack early on developing multi-sport adventures in various western states, a format that is now a staple with many companies. Many of our original destinations have since been embraced by our competitors, but we all know what they say about imitation.

These classic trips will be available for a limited run, so book soon and join the ride!
