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.


Ever since our first bike ride together in Burgundy, France in 2011, we've worked together all around the globe, biked on three continents, and found hidden treasures on countless adventures along the way.


After working in the travel industry for a combined 19 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 from their handlebars thanks to our small business. 

After 5 years in operation, we decided to close Best Coast Biking in the summer of 2020. Now BCB is focused on encouraging cyclists 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. Best Coast Biking is now maintained by Sarah, who will happily answer any questions you have by email.
