"A motorcycle adventure is different from an ordinary vacation because it is a true adventure.....
"Adventures, like vacations, aren't every-weekend activities. You plan for them, save for them, then live them - and remember them for the rest of your life." - Dirt Bike Magazine "10 Wild Rides", December 1995. (Backroads Adventures was selected one of the top 10 motorcycle adventures as reported in a special feature article by the Adventure Bike staff journalists reporting on the best motorcycle adventures in the world).

"Forget saving for retirement - these rides are never to be forgotten adventures. Do them before it's too late!! - Kiwi Motorcycle Rider "Adventure Riding in British Columbia", April 1999 article by John Dalgliesh.

On July 2, 1999 we embarked on our first "Across BC Tour". It was truly an epic adventure and has now become one of our favorite rides. After 15 years experience organizing tours throughout British Columbia I can tell you this is the one tour you should make a goal to do at least once in your lifetime. This challenging ride is organized with options of five, fourteen and twenty day tours. John Dalgliesh summed it up when he wrote, "Forget saving for retirement - these rides are never to be forgotten adventures. Do them before it's too late!"
