moderate temperatures, and breathtaking views,
you're sure to have a pleasant experience.

bike lesson from a trained bicycle
coach, or you can have private lessons to

your liking, we'll have it ready for you.

eclectic architecture, hear great stories and
anecdotes, rub elbows with some of Boulder's
elite and world-class athletes, and make some
new friends. There's no better or healthier

Boulder Area Bicycle Adventures was
conceived in 2004 and is the brainchild of Boulder resident Andrea
Tollefsrud. Andrea has been riding bikes avidly since she was a very
tiny person. She got her first blue 'banana bike' at age 5 and rode it
into the ground. Then, with her first 10-speed, she put more miles on
the country roads of Illinois than most people's cars back in those
Andrea came to Boulder over 20 years ago as an
up-and-coming competitive road and mountain-bike cyclist. She even
ranked in the top 20 nationally in 1990. After retiring from
competitive racing, her passion for cycling continued and that led to
the development of the
Women on Mountain Bikes Program (W.O.M.B.)
in 1997. In addition to her cycling programs, Andrea is a
well-established Personal Trainer, Bicycle Coach, and Certified
Andrea lives cycling. She also loves the
outdoors. Add to that her love and knowledge of Boulder, and you've got
the makings of a guide whose passion is contagious and whose stories and
anecdotes will hold your interest and inspire you to ride your bike and
explore all the wonders of Boulder.
BABA owner Andrea Tollefsrud has chosen a staff of like-minded cycling enthusiasts whose high
energy, knowledge, and enthusiasm for bicycling and the Boulder outdoors
is equally as infectious.
