Backroads puts as much care into devising routes and hiring guides as it does into selecting its bikes (custom-designed only). Choose from three levels of comfort (premier, casual, or camping) and enjoy special access wherever you go—be it the day's first tour of Mexico's Chichen Itza ruins or an exclusive pedal through Botswana's Mashatu Game Reserve.

Our commitment to sustainable travel

Backroads  has been taking responsible travel seriously since our first biking trips 30 years ago. After all, traveling on two feet or two wheels is the ultimate minimal-impact approach to traveling. But we also recognize that any travel has an impact, so we do everything we can to make that impact positive.

Carbon-Neutral Trip Support Backroads has purchased carbon offsets to offset 100% of the fuel we use on trips with our support vans.

Sustainable Products All of our water bottles are recyclable and we use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper in the majority of our printed marketing materials. We’ve created a web portal for our guests so that we can replace more printed materials with electronic versions.

Leader Training All Backroads leaders are trained to minimize impact on the environment while supporting your experience as guests. Leaders practice Leave No Trace principles on the trail, recycle whenever possible in all the regions we travel, and donate leftover foods to various community programs.

Community Partnerships We support non-profits in the communities where our guests live by donating trips as fundraisers. We've donated a total of over one million dollars to the worthwhile causes of more than 150 organizations.  For a full list, please see www.backroads.com/why/responsible/

That’s the thing about India. It’s big. Population. Land mass. It has its own ocean. That’s why we made this journey epic. Ten days of riding. You’ll ride deserts - when the weather is right.

Cool mornings, warm colors, rolling hills invite you. Round the corner and you’re high above in the Green Mountains. Around the next, quiet farmlands. Taste the maple. Hear the hum of your wheels on the timber of a covered bridge. Take the afternoon in Woodstock and walk the quaint shops in biking shoes. It’s okay. They’ve heard the "clip-clop" before.
