So, you’ve conquered community bike rides; pedaled through the familiar bike trails; and maybe even tackled an MS 150. Is there something more exhilarating, more immersive? Welcome to the world of bike touring, where the possibilities are as vast as the open road.
Types of Bike Touring
Bike touring is a versatile adventure that can be tailored to your preferences. Whether you opt for bike trails, hub-and-spoke trips, self-supported experiences, guided journeys, bike packing, a spontaneous weekend trip, or an extended multi-week expedition, the options are as diverse as the landscapes you'll traverse.
Embracing the Journey
Bike touring offers a unique and intimate experience. Unlike the rushed pace of everyday life, on your bike, you can savor the sights, revel in the sounds, and truly immerse yourself in the day. It's not just about reaching the destination; it's about embracing the journey. With a little bit of preparation, bike touring is fully attainable for every rider.
