Bike Trip Planning

Anyone Can and Should Do It

When you ride your bike across the countryside for days at a time, carrying camping gear, extra bike supplies, a map, and the knowledge that you will get to your destination, amazing things happen. One of the greatest gifts that touring by bicycle will give you, is the confidence to trust yourself, and to be flexible in your decision making.

Often the reality of planning a trip is transformed by actually being on the trip - things happen; roads get washed out, the town you planned on riding through is celebrating their once a year community parade and festival, or you don't speak the language very well. So you adjust plans, and magically it all works out.
