OUTSIDE, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, has chosen this year’s annual Best of Travel winners, and recognized Bicycle Adventures, a Pacific Northwest-based active travel company specializing in two-wheel tours in North America and internationally, to receive the Best of Travel 2015 Award for top Family Outfitter.
From newly revealed travel territories to the best deals, OUTSIDE’s Best of Travel 2015 celebrates the destinations and travel providers that inspire people to participate in an active lifestyle.
Bicycle Adventures (http://bicycleadventures.com/) was singled out as the Best Family Outfitter for 2015. The entire list of winners appears in OUTSIDE’s April issue (on newsstands March 17), and online at www.outsideonline.com/bestoftravel.
This year, OUTSIDE’s adventure travel veterans scoured the globe to identify the coolest mountains to climb, food to eat, rivers to float, guides to hire, beaches to lounge on, and lodges to luxuriate in. The result is 40 breathtaking options—from the guides to show you around, to the cameras to capture it all, to the places to stay, to the best place to grab a snack at a food truck along the way.
“OUTSIDE has been covering the adventure-travel beat for nearly four decades,” said Editor Chris Keyes. “We know this terrain, and now we’ve narrowed your choices of hotels, destinations, outfitters, and travel gear from approximately 10.6 million to 40. The final choice is still on you, but now the task is at least manageable.”
Describing the thought process behind their popular family programs, Todd Starnes, Bicycle Adventures’ President and Owner had this to say, “We listened to our loyal alumni when they told us they would like to bring their children on a bicycling vacation. We crafted the kind of itineraries our own families would love and as a result, our family business, in just a few years is growing exponentially.”
An advantage of most Bicycle Adventures family tours is the fact that daily pedaling is on safe, car-free bike paths. For young families the staff can arrange to accommodate infants and toddlers in bike trailers; children as young as four can participate in pedaling special tag-along bikes attached to the back of a parent’s bicycle. Equipment is provided by the company. The two-wheel itineraries include such diversions as ice cream stops, amusement parks, swimming and river rafting. An example of a new-for-2015 trip is a family bicycle vacation in Idaho. http://bicycleadventures.com/tours/family-bike-tours/Coeur-d’Alene-Family—NEW!
