EASIER THAN YOU THOUGHT
Get Off The Stationary Bike And Actually Go Somewhere!
Whether you want to push your legs to the limit or coast along in luxury, there's a cycling trip right for everyone who loves to ride
If the tour is far from home, bringing your entire bike can be a pain. Consider packing just your seat, pedals, and helmet, for comfort and safety.
Keep your ego in check when considering your level of cycling. One cyclist's "moderate" uphill is another's thigh-burning nightmare.
Always pack cool-weather and rain gear.
Many "all inclusive" bike trips do not cover lunch or alcohol.
Ask what kind of bike is included or you might wind up with an old, heavy ten-speed.
