The Exciting New 2007-8 Explore Cycle Brochure Now Spans the Globe, With 33 Tours in 26 Countries Worldwide, and 8 New Itineraries Added for 2007-8

EMERYVILLE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 22, 2007 -- Innovative new cycling tours have been launched in destinations including India, Thailand, Mexico, Slovakia, Switzerland and Hungary. The focus remains on predominantly easy-going cycling along scenic routes, with trips from 4 to 16 days in length, spanning four continents.

Trevor Saxty, President of Adventure Center, comments: "If you had to invent the perfect form of transportation for adventure travel, the chances are you would end up with a bicycle. What else has minimal environmental impact, keeps you very close to the local people, lets you travel at your own pace, and helps you end your trip fitter than when you started? You could hike but a bike lets you fast forward the scenery when you feel like it."
