Leadership

Tour Leaders

people hiking

Without a doubt, we believe our tour leaders are the heart and soul of Timberline. These very special men and women are chosen by Timberline, not only for their obvious love of cycling and hiking and the outdoors, but also because of their caring manner, competence and enthusiasm, and their desire to share some extraordinary experiences with a wide variety of people and personalities over the course of a season.

In most cases, two leaders will be assigned to each group. In addition to extensive cycle touring and hiking experience, each leader is certified in CPR and as a Wilderness First Responder.  Guides attend an annual Guide Training Weekend, put on by Timberline Adventures,  filled with updates, safety information and more. Our bicycle tour leaders are competent bicycle mechanics and will be equipped to assist with repairs and maintenance.
