Bicycle Adventures, the leader in North American bicycle touring, is proud to announce that it is the presenting sponsor of a brand-new, one-of-a-kind cycling experience taking place in June in the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest.

“We’re committed to promoting cutting-edge bicycling opportunities for enthusiasts of all interests and abilities, so when we had the chance to sponsor a cycling event never before offered in the U.S., the Suncadia Cycling Festival, we jumped,” said Todd Starnes, owner/president.

Starnes’ team is helping coordinate three days, June 27-29, celebrating all things bicycle in the mountains of Washington State.  This is a fondo-style cycling weekend with a mix of dirt, pavement and gravel cycling on three courses that celebrate the beauty and charm of Suncadia and neighboring towns on the sunny side of Washington's Cascade Range. There is also a special family ride planned during the weekend.

“As gravel roads are disappearing under asphalt, it’s interesting to know that bicycle riders are discovering, or re-discovering, the pleasures of these often tertiary routes that convey life in the country and mountains as it used to be,” says Starnes.

The event is designed for bikers of all ages and abilities. Families are encouraged to join the fun. Starnes hopes that this will become an annual event in this region and that other sections of the country can follow this lead.

Bicycle Adventures has designed and will offer special lodging, meals and riding packages for the weekend event. For more details please see:
