Exploring the Golden Triangle near Laos & Myanmar.

Language barrier, embrace it. Travel guide book, dump it. Fear of street food, chuck it. Liberate yourself from all that. Wake up expecting anything. Mai pen rai (no worries). Because "hey, you're in Thailand." Bike an uncharted oxcart path among lush rice paddies and garlic fields. Be startled by an ornate Buddhist temple quietly sitting in the middle of a jungle-filled valley. Relish a truly homemade curry and stare at the jagged limestone hills that have not changed for thousands of years. Say to yourself, "Is it Tuesday?" Even that doesn't matter because you're in Thailand. So mai pen rai.

Just over the Golden Gate Bridge is a land filled with breathtaking open spaces—thanks to a group of locals who banded together in the 1950’s to save them—along the Northern California coast.
The Northern California Coast has incredible hiking, Marin open spaces, historic lodging, a local food movement, Point Reyes, Muir Woods and San Francisco.

Hey, is it snowing where you live? Wish you could click your heels and be having fun in the sun in the Florida Keys now? After years of research we’re thrilled about our inaugural trip from the Everglades to Key West, chock full of biking, walking, snorkeling and good times!

Cyclists can sometimes seem to have a language of their own. Here's an article that can help you decipher these words. A Layman's Dictionary for Biking Terminology.

How many times have your hip biking (spandex, not leather) friends asked you a question using a term you don’t fully understand?

The World's #1 Active Travel Company
Introduction
Backroads has worldwide award-winning Biking, Walking & Hiking and Multisport Tours. We also have specially designed trips for Families and Private groups as well as our Classic Adult Tours.

Explore, discover and connect with the world!

Company Overview:

Tom Hale, Backroads founder and president, built Backroads with his passion for exploring the world’s most fascinating places actively. Thirty years later, each Backroads employee and legions of loyal travelers could not imagine a better way to travel—immersing yourself in the life of a region and exploring hidden corners while enjoying the benefits and enormous satisfaction of traveling under your own power. These are experiences you cannot have behind the wheel of a car, or on a train or a tour bus, or in a few excursions from a cruise ship or a secluded resort. Active travel is, at its heart, a way of connecting more authentically with the world. Sure, Backroads provides superb accommodations and meals, and opportunities you could never arrange on your own. But all of our comprehensive planning and support is aimed at something far simpler: bringing you the immediate, highly personal satisfaction of discovering a new world on your own terms.
