Western Route 66

90th Anniversary of the Mother Road!

21 Days Mod-Advanced 1302 MLSAVG 72 MLS

Route 66 first became a recognized highway in 1926. It evolved with different alignments that carried thousands of travelers from Chicago to California and back again. Our bicycle tour will explore these forgotten sections and link together many desolate pieces of original roadbed. Besides finding old concrete, we will experience the culture that defined America from 1920 to 1980. Route 66 is a unique tour that combines over 60 years of cross country history with a fun bicycle adventure.

The 2016 Western Route 66 Tour is limited by motel space.

PAC Tours are unique among bicycle tours, but Route 66 PAC Tour is unique among PAC Tours. For my money (and I've paid to do this tour a couple of times), it's the most fun you can have on a bike tour in America. But you're not me. So how do you know whether riding from Santa Monica, CA to Amarillo, TX in 18 days is your mug of sarsaparilla?

Of course you need to love riding your bike and can ride 100 miles easily enough -- but you aren't obsessed with simply racking up miles. This is one tour where you won't want to hammer -- there's too much to see. And even if you are a fast rider, you've also meandered down a road just to see where it goes. Plus, you're curious about the places you ride: the history (natural and unnatural), the locals, the hamburgers. You like a good story, and you love to ride to places that most people never see.September is a perfect time of year for riding in New Mexico. The hottest summer days are past and the cold days of autumn have not arrived. The winds are typically from the southwest, bringing warm dry air across the region. Our circular route will have a balance of winds. The days are planned to fit into six to eight hours of cycling regardless of the weather.
