Welcome to the Complete Guide to Bicycle Touring! Throughout 2021 and beyond this page will progressively grow with links to blog posts discussing everything you need to know before hitting the road on your first big bicycle tour. We’ll discuss bicycle touring culture, route planning, navigation, emotional and physical preparation, essential skills (don’t worry, there aren’t many!) and other elements of life on the road. Check back here for new posts each week, or sign up for the mailing list to get word of each week’s post plus a digest of the internet’s best travel, culture and science writing.
