For months, we’ve been dreaming and scheming what 2013 will look like.

We wanted to create a series of meaningful adventures that would be sure to inform, inspire, and empower.

We wanted to plan experiences that would leave our volunteer tour members with new perspectives and new skills in leadership, public engagement, bike touring and community building.

We wanted our 10th season of sustainability & social justice cycling tours achieve maximum impact, maximum learning, and maximum fun.

It is with pride that we announce to you our 2013 tour slate.  We hope to see you on the road.

Peace & Bike Grease,
