Come ride your bicycle with us across the country learning
about and promoting sustainability and permaculture. Our most
powerful program yet - a supported cross-country tour (support
vehicle, meals and lodging included) to farms and
sustainability sites, integrated with our award-winning
permaculture design and regenerative leadership certification
and much more -- this program will change your life.
This three-month intensive course combines our Urban
Permaculture and Regenerative Leadership Certificate training,
followed by a Wilderness First Aid training before we head on
the road cycling from Eugene, Oregon all the way across
America to Washington DC (we’ll be roughly following the
TransAM bike route – about 4200 miles), promoting and
learning about sustainable living and intentional communities.
The stunning places you will visit on this program and the
extraordinary people you will meet will challenge and inspire
Who: You and your neighbors who care about a sustainable
future for America. As always, all of our programs are
designed for beginner and intermediate cyclists.
Where: Eugene, Oregon to Washington, DC
When: June 1 - August 31, 2012

This program is about sustainable community living –
through the extensive training and preparation, the group will
form a self-contained community on wheels that will cycle
across the nation learning and promoting sustainable living.
Because all of our programs are always designed for beginner
and intermediate cyclists, we will teach you how to fix your
own flats, fundamentals of bicycle mechanics, wilderness first
aid, many safe bicycle touring skills, and provide you with
the best possible routes. The permaculture training at the
start of the course will give you a very thorough foundation
in sustainable community design. Our experienced program
co-facilitators will help facilitate the entire program,
holding the community container and sharing their experience
and guidance along the way — but otherwise serving
primarily as members of the community.
Here are some quick facts about this program:
--> Includes our Urban Permaculture Design and Regenerative
Leadership Certification training
--> Includes our Oregon Sustainability in Motion Bike Tour
--> Includes a Wilderness First Aid certification training!
--> We will be following the TransAM route – roughly 4000 miles.
--> Average of 60 miles per day (~4-8 hours per day) with
rest/service days roughly once per week
--> This is a supported tour – a vehicle carries all the gear.
--> Meals are included – organic and vegan ingredients and
menu will be provided, group members take turns cooking
--> Experienced and knowledgeable tour support staff team
will cycle with the group.
--> Camping accommodations for most of the program
Aside from the amazing places you will visit on this course,
the most inspiring and transformational aspect of this program
is undoubtedly the incredible community that will form
throughout the course. The depth and richness of dialogue of
each of our programs naturally leads to friendships and
relationships that last well past the expedition itself.
We’ve often heard comments from participants who mention
that they have never experienced community the way that they
have during a Common Circle Education program.
