Intro to Touring

The video above shows a Bike Travel Weekend from that starts in LA, but it could start in any city. The point is to leave the city behind and enjoy a weekend on your bike with gear you probably already have.

I’m teaching classes that introduce people to bike touring. Upcoming classes are listed below. The focus of these classes is using gear you already have and prepare for a weekend bike tour.

Bike Touring Resources

  • Easily the best website for bike touring.
  • Their website is almost too good, so it can be hard to find the information beginners need, so this page provides links just for beginners.

Bike Overnights

  • Great introduction to weekend bike tours
  • My First Overnight, descriptions from many cyclists about their first overnight trip
