Bike touring is rising in popularity across the country, and for good reason. Many seasoned cyclists will tell you: There’s no better way to experience a place than by bike.
If your relationship with your bike stops at day trips, the idea of a multi-day excursion might seem intimidating! Rest easy! These simple tips can help get you on your way to your first overnighter. And we bet it won’t be your last!

First, Ask Yourself…

What distance is reasonable? Are you comfortable on gravel trails, or would you prefer a paved path? Remember, this is your trip, so cater to your own desires. FYI: With RTC’s trail-finder website, Traillink.com, you can search for trails in your region and even sort them by activity and length.
