See your world differently.
After a year of global pandemic, we’re starting to reawaken. We’re ready for adventure, we’re itching to explore. Shake off the Covid cobwebs and an incredible four day cycling and creativity trip of the San Juan Islands. The ferry ride into the archipelago kickstarts a tour of three of our favorite islands in a way that will completely change the way you see your day-to-day. Under the guidance of Anna Brones you’ll pedal the San Juan Islands with sketchbooks on hand, pedaling Swift Adventure Co.’s favorite backroads and tapping into your own creativity, making your own adventure art. We’ll be drawing, painting, writing, and fueling our creative selves along the way.
Each day will include lead bike rides of our favorite roads and guided instruction to get your creativity flowing.

-Tap into a creative practice that feels adventurous but that you can also take with you back home
-Explore and awaken your curiosity!

Official Trip Info
You don’t need to be a renaissance master to tune-in to your surroundings and see your world completely differently. The art of illustration is as much about observing as it is about laying pigment to paper. Unlock a kaleidoscope of texture and light, and hone your pen and brush skills as we explore the wilder side of the San Juan Islands by bicycle.
The trip starts and ends at Swift HQ in Seattle, WA. Coming from out-of-town? Don’t hesitate to contact us about lodging recommendations and travel logistics, we’re happy to help!
