The BICYCLE TOUR NETWORK (BTN), formerly The National Bicycle Tour Directors Association (NBTDA) was formed nearly 30 years ago by a small core of ride directors for professional development, marketing and networking purposes.  It has grown to include more than 100 organizations that direct nearly 350 bicycle rides and tours across North America. The primary purpose of BTN is to bring together the directors, coordinators, and organizers of multi-day bicycle tours throughout North America, including Canada and Mexico, Europe, and Asia to share ideas, learn ways to improve their events and promote responsible cycling.
