Tips for your First Bicycle Tour

Postby AntonioCM » 20 Oct 2014, 5:16pm

Hey guys!

After being almost 2 years on the road, I was thinking there are so many things I wish I knew when I started so I could have done some things differently to fully enjoy my bicycle trip from the beginning. For that reason, I decided to put all those tips together in this article.

My question is. What would you add? Do you agree with these tips or just with some of them?

Thanks for sharing your experiences!

Safe travels,
Antonio

Lots of excellent suggestions there Antonio, I especially liked the generally positive and encouraging advice. I had thought you would have had lots or detailed tips on gear etc but it was refreshing to find it was mostly "seize the day and have fun"!!
A practical bit of advice I find helpful is to take and carry photocopies of passports, IDs, driving licences etc. Useful to have spare rechargeable power for phones too
