We've had requests for Senior Cycling tours in the western states. Right now we have just one van and trailer, and the country is just too big for us to be in the east and in the west at the same time. However, one of our tour leaders, Jack Pettry and his partner, Maer Siebert have years of experience leading bike tours. They live in Missoula Montana and their touring company, Inipi-Blueraven Adventures, have put together some tours OUT WEST in the Senior Cycling style (rail-trails, lower daily miles, hotel stays). Here are some details:
