About Us

Teen Treks gives teenagers the chance to discover the excitement and fun of bike touring with a bunch of like-minded people, seeing beautiful natural landscapes and world-class cities while gaining independence and travel skills. We help teens find great experiences out on the road and make memories that will last a lifetime.

We explore the Great Lakes of New York and the islands of Vancouver. We pedal past Big Ben in Great Britain and cruise along the beaches of New England.

Teenagers from all 50 states, plus Canada, Europe, and Asia join our trips – and everyone gets a lot of say in what the group does each day, from planning the details of the route to picking out what’s for dinner. If everyone wants to bike hard and get to the beach faster, you can do that. If you want to spend a little more time taking pictures at a breathtaking waterfall or a picturesque waterfront, you can do that.

Any teenager can enjoy one of our summer bike trips. We love a good challenge and we encourage teens to be ambitious, but we keep things fun, too – there’s always time to stop for ice cream, enjoy the scenery, or check out an awesome local restaurant or historical site.

At Teen Treks we offer fun and not competitive biking experiences.  Our Moderate rated trips are geared towards first time bicyclists, appropriate for most 14-18 year olds in average or better physical health. Our Easy treks are extremely easy in terms of daily mileage and terrain and will attract slower riders. For our Challenging treks you need to be in good shape and enjoy bicycling.  We have had many first time riders do challenging treks and this is for those eager for a challenge.

From 2001 – 2008, Teen Treks ran self-contained bike trips as part of American Youth Hostels. Today, we’re an independent organization concentrating entirely on providing outstanding summer bike travel programs for teens, in the traditional style that dates back to the 1930s.

Over our history, we’ve run fantastic trips up and down the New England Shore, from New York to Montreal, in the Pacific Northwest, and along the California Coast, Across America, and through the best sites in Europe. This year, we’re offering 50 unforgettable adventures.

Teen Treks offers by far the best value in truly extraordinary bike trips for teenagers.
