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. At least 70 percent of our staff are returnees from prior seasons, and several have been a part of the Timberline family since our earliest days.
Two leaders will be assigned to each group. In addition to extensive cyclotouring and hiking experience, each leader will have completed a leadership training course and will have received certification in first aid and CPR. Our bicycle tour leaders are competent bicycle mechanics and will be equipped to assist with repairs and maintenance.
