What do 11,000 cookies, free laundry, and 350 miles of continuous trail have in common? All come from acts of passion for bicycling and the generosity of spirit shown by past Adventure Cycling Awards winners. The time has come to recognize the next round of bicycling advocates — all we need are your nominations.

Did you go on a challenging bicycle tour with an amazing group leader? Were you the recipient of a kindly act of generosity on the trail? Do you frequent a bike shop that goes the extra mile to put you back safely on the road? Now’s the time to celebrate these bicycle travel heroes through Adventure Cycling’s four annual, nationally recognized bicycle travel awards.

The Pacesetter Award recognizes and applauds the efforts of those who, through extraordinary efforts, have contributed to the success of individuals’ bicycle travels in the U.S. Read more about the 2nd annual Pacesetter Award and nominate at www.adventurecycling.org/outreach/awards/champion.cfm.
