GIFT-GIVING MADE EASY FOR YOUR ACTIVE FRIENDS

 GIFT-GIVING MADE EASY FOR YOUR ACTIVE FRIENDS
 BERKELEY, Calif., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- As the holidays approach,


you may be starting to wonder what to give the person on your list who has everything. If your friend is active or enjoys travel, Backroads Bicycle Touring of Berkeley has a novel suggestion -- a gift certificate for one of their van-supported bicycling or walking vacations.
 The company offers trips throughout the United States and in Europe, Asia and the Pacific. Destinations range from places as quaint as Vermont and Louisiana to exotic countries like Thailand, China and Indonesia. Weekend trips are available in California to the wine country, the coast, the mountains, and the desert. The recipient of your gift can choose from a carefree camping trip (the trip leaders do all of the cooking and cleaning), which are offered to many national and provincial parks; or, they may decide to take a luxurious inn tour, in which nights are spent at the finest hotels in the area. Also available are special-interest tours especially for singles, families, students and people over 60, and trips that focus on art, photography and health and fitness. Whichever trip he or she chooses, the recipient of this unique gift will enjoy beautiful scenery, the camaraderie of fellow bicycling or walking enthusiasts, and delicious, plentiful meals throughout an active day.
 Trip prices include meals and accommodations, maps and written directions, and the services of two or three professional tour guides and a support van, which carries all luggage and is available for a lift throughout the day. Customized 21-speed bicycles are available to rent from Backroads.
 Each of the trips is described in Backroads' 92-page, award-winning catalog. To order a gift certificate or to receive a free copy of the catalog, contact Backroads Bicycle Touring, 1516 5th Street, PR 56, Berkeley, CA 94710-1740, or call toll-free 800-BIKE-TRIP (800-245-3874).
