About

At Best Coast Biking, our mission is to expose you to the incredible adventure of bike touring the Pacific Coast. By making independent bike touring easily accessible for any rider, our hope is that you can explore the immense beauty of the West Coast and have the opportunity to create a profound experience, one in which you discover as much about yourself as you do the world around you.

Co-Founders

We've been close friends ever since we first went on a bike ride together in Burgundy, France nine years ago. In tandem since then, we've worked together on the other side of the world, biked on three continents, and found hidden treasures on countless adventures around the globe.

 

After working in the travel industry for a combined nineteen years, we put our own touch on bicycle tourism, and started the first-ever independent bike tour outfitting company. Our tours spanned the Pacific Coast Bike Route in Oregon and California, and dozens of happy riders from around the world enjoyed the coast thanks to our small business. 

After 5 years in operation, we decided to close Best Coast Biking in the summer of 2020, and instead, we're focusing on encouraging folx to get outdoors and explore by bike. Our routes available for download in the "Journeys" section will hopefully give you the peace of mind to embark on your own adventure. Have fun and ride safe!

Biker, ultimate frisbee pro, mountaineer, scuba diver, skier, and snowboarder extraordinaire are just a few of the activities Daniel excels at. Having received his B.Com from McGill University, Daniel combined his passion for the outdoors with travel. He worked in sales and business development at G Adventures before guiding with Butterfield & Robinson for seven years throughout France, Iceland, and South-East Asia.

Sarah Lewis

Avid outdoorswoman, sustainable development enthusiast, polyglot, musician, and gypsy at heart, Sarah has always found ways to combine her passions. After receiving her M.S.c in Environment & Development at the London School of Economics, Sarah took some time to travel while guiding with Butterfield & Robinson. Having worked in Europe, Latin America, and South-East Asia and North Africa for seven years, Sarah explored the many facets of development through tourism. Since then, she has begun working in international development, and currently leads communications for a governance project with the British Council in Bangladesh. She lives in Vancouver, BC and is organizing bike tours with and for BIPOC, women and queer folx who want to explore by bike.
