ACTC Academy - Touring

The next class has not yet been set.

Curriculum for Touring

Do you want to experience the freedom of self-supported touring? Need some help getting started with the right equipment?

Looking for a supportive environment? Then join us for a couple of great weekend tours.


We hold two meetings:

  1. a lecture and demo,
  2. lecture, problem solving, and a practice ride with equipment.

We do two tours, an overnight at a hostel and a self-contained camping adventure. Sign up for one or both.





Riders must be ACTC members at least 18 years of age for either of the tours. Previous Touring Academy participants are welcome! Students must register for at least one of the two tours and, of course, are encouraged to register for both tours. Limit: 10 students.



If you are not an ACTC member, you can join by using the inside back page of any Black and Blue Bottom newsletter or by printing the membership form at this link: If you have additional questions after reading the remaining information (below), please contact:
