Psyched Up for a Bike Tour


Going for a journey by bike is one of the best ways to explore the world. If you’ve signed up for a bicycle tour, you’re in for an adventure of a lifetime. Before you embark on your travel experience, you’ll need to train and prepare so you will be ready to get the most out of your trip. This is true whether you’re a novice cyclist or have logged many miles on previous excursions.

To prepare for your bike tour, you should start a workout routine three months before you leave. You’ll need to commit to riding multiple days per week, and mixing it up with cross training. Your trip’s level of intensity will dictate how hard you should train ahead of time. If you’re planning to ride 30-40 daily miles on your tour, you can follow a more moderate training schedule, than if your tour’s daily goals are 60-80 miles/day.

In addition to choosing your route and adhering to a training schedule, you’ll need to get plenty of rest, eat nutritious foods to fuel your energy requirements, drink adequate amounts of water, and pack the right gear. It seems like a lot of preparation, but it will be well worth it when you’re out on the trail.
