National Bicycle Touring Portraits at ACA

greg

The Adventure Cycling Association’s mission is to inspire people of all ages to travel by bicycle. Many of those cyclists – inspired to spend their summers riding across the US – have included a stop at the ACA’s headquarters in Missoula, Montana. Since 1982, Greg Siple (that’s him in the picture above) has been photographing them with their gear and asking them about their travels. Recently, they’ve been posting a few of their more than 3000 (!) photos and the travelers’ stories on their website.

Above is a photo of Raymond Riha who stopped by on his trip from Oregon to Virginia this summer. Check out the rest of the pictures and plan your next cycling adventure here.

Sounds like a cool coffee table book is in order…it would make a great fundraiser!
