Paper Trail Gravel Travel and Bike Cafe align closely with the vision of Rodeo Labs. Paper Trail builds community with bicycles and encourages people to experience places and friendships that will be new to them. Our companies are not one and the same, but we overlap a lot. We want to host this information page about Paper Trail to help support their quickly growing Gravel Travel all inclusive / supported gravel bike trips that they are hosting in 2022.

Paul, Mark and the team at Paper Trail are passionate about riding bikes and creating community. With all-inclusive “Gravel Travel” the idea is simple: everyone has fun getting dirty riding bikes on gravel. Their focus is deliberate: Find and explore quiet backroads forgotten by America, then pamper your socks off while you’re there.

Paper Trail will be hosting 2022 trips in Arizona, Vermont, Central Pennsylvania and North Carolina. At every opportunity Paper Trail prioritizes experience over speed.  Their home base, the Paper Trail Bike Cafe in Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park, doubles as a Service Course for Gravel Travel and shelter for the only Rodeo Labs Demo Herd outside of HQ in Denver. Conveniently the Bike Cafe sits at the trailhead of nearly 50 miles of singletrack and the entrance to Forbidden Drive’s 8 miles of uninterrupted gravel where they host the weekly non-drop “Gravel Espresso” Philly’s gravel-est group ride.

Paper Trail Gravel Travel trips are modeled around the following:

4 Day, 3 night worry-free adventure and cycling

Professional guides & guest customized routes

Chef curated menu which is locally sourced & executed

Experiential Accommodations

Top Notch Cycling Kit and Apparel

Onsite Yoga and wellness instruction

Live-In cycling and nutrition coaching

The best gravel bike fleet in the world

All Included. Ride. Refuel. Recover.

Let’s Gravel Together.

‘You turn the pedals, we’ll do the rest.”
