Bicycle touring is an excellent way to see sights both near and far. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’d like to accomplish there, biking can help you do it. Planning a trip with a biking trip operator will help you alleviate any stress involved with planning a vacation yourself. You’ll meet like-minded biking enthusiasts, improve your skills and have fun the whole time you are doing it!
There are a few things to take into consideration before beginning any such adventure because you really don’t want to have any worries when you are holidaying. Take great care in choosing the operator of your trip. Pick an operator that has both a wealth of biking experience themselves and who has led many biking trips. They should have a good reputation within and around their respective communities and they should not have a problem answering any of your questions. The last thing you need is an impatient guide when you are trying to have fun.
Always ask them how long they have been in the business, to where they have taken clients, how long their leaders have been cyclists and what provisions are put in place to protect both you and your enjoyable experience. Always ask what’s included in quoted prices. Ask if meals, snacks and entry fees are paid for. Above all, ask for a detailed itinerary before booking any trip. That way there will be no last minute surprises and disappointments, plus you’ll be able to find out whether or not the cycling trip includes the sights and activities you really want to experience.
