National Bicycle Touring Portrait Collection
The Montana-based non-profit Adventure Cycling Association was established in 1973 to cater to the growing number of American touring cyclists. The organization produces long-distance maps, a magazine, and guides group trips for its 42,000-plus members. Many touring cyclists make a point to include the Adventure Cycling Association’s Missoula, Montana office as a stop on their tour.
In 1982, Greg Siple, one of four founding members of the Adventure Cycling Association, began recording the bicycle travelers that stopped on film and asking them to tell their stories - leading to the eventual creation of Adventure Cycling's National Bicycle Touring Portrait Collection.
On display May 18-31st at the Fayetteville Town Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, experience a small portion of the 3,350 portraits Greg captured over the years – each with a unique written record of the cyclist’s journey.
The exhibit is free and open to the public during select times at the Fayetteville Town Center, located at 15 W Mountain on the south side of Fayetteville’s historic Downtown Square. Free public parking is available around the Downtown Square or in the Fayetteville Town Center Parking Garage for a nominal fee.
