In this workshop my brother and I would like to share and hear about some things we learned on the different bicycle tours we have been on. We hope to cover some of the most frequently asked questions and dispel common misconceptions about cycle touring. Safety is one of the most important aspects of any outing you take cycle touring is no different. Planning or at the vary least being prepared for the unexpected makes these time less stressful and also not as unexpected. Having said that you wont be able to foresee every event along the way. Accepting that you may have to get crafty in your problem solving will be less stressful that makes a trip more enjoyable it is an adventure after all.
There are many types of tours make it your own whether that ultra ultra light and fast or slow relaxed see the sights. Don’t feel you need the most expensive hi-tech equipment to have an incredible tour.
- A bike (2 wheels, 3 wheels, 1 wheel)
- As much or as little gear as you want/
- LIGHTS AND REFLETVE GEAR!!! I don’t care how much you say you wont ride at night it will happen and just because you can see the car doesn’t mean they see you.
- A date you plan to depart.
I will tell some stories from past tours and I hope that the adeance shares some also and has questions
