Touring 101: Routes & Resources - Where to start!
Learn where to find bicycle touring resources and how to plan your route. Options for multi modal trips, maps, apps, websites, riding groups and much more will be discussed.

Any bike can be a touring bike but there are a couple guidelines to follow to be sure you choose what’s best! Where are you riding and what are you bringing? Carefully planning what you bring and how you attach it to your bike will make or break you next trip. We will discuss fitting guidelines and go over what separates different styles of bikes and how they can be beneficial for your future adventures!

If you want to start riding longer distances, you’ll need to carry gear on your bike, like food, water, extra clothing, sunscreen, some tools, maybe even things to sleep on or in. Depending on how much you have to take with you, there are lots of ways to carry things on your bike. These include baskets, racks, pannier bags, frame bags, backpacks or even trailers. We’ll cover different options for equipping your bike to carry the things you’ll need on both short and long trips.
