I am 66 and semi retired. Have enjoyed bike trips on the great divide over a few years and this year in France and Spain.

I am a 70 year-old that has primarily been running over the last 10 years. (Lots of gym sessions and treadmill in the decades before that.) I completed the Viva Italia in the fall of 2019 and was impressed. It's time to take on some more trips.

"The routes are amazing, never missing the beautiful city sights and bustle, nor an opportunity to go off the beaten path and experience unique and awe-inspiring scenes of nature. The touring staff are phenomenal, some I'd even say legendary in their own right, truly going above and beyond. The places I've seen and people I've met, fellow cyclists, staff, and even people I've met along the way have remained good friends with whom I have precious memories. And man have I got great stories for grand kids someday!"

"Experienced, organized cycling tour company with many long-distance tours in some of the most far-flung and interesting destinations in the world. Great staff, great support on tour, great problem-solving abilities. I recommend them highly, especially if you're up for an unforgettable cycling challenge."

"TDA’s adventure/expedition tours are amazingly fun and professionally organized to get you in (and out) of diverse, remote, culturally interesting places with an intimate experience of local cultures and the geography. It is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to explore vast continents, meet interesting people and to broaden one’s horizons."
