Preparing for Your Bike Vacation

Preparing for your bike vacation

If you’re preparing for your bike vacation, there is nothing worse than being left behind by the pack, feeling that you’re holding up the group, or pushing yourself so hard to keep up that you can’t enjoy the surroundings or the company ─ or worse, incurring an injury as a result of being out of your element.

Preparing for any type of vacation is important, but especially on a cycling trip. There are several things to consider well in advance of putting up the money for your trip. These include:

  • what is your existing fitness level
  • what is your familiarity with cycling
  • what is the amount of time you have to get ready for the trip
  • research the equipment (including clothing) you take/use
  • prepare for the amount of time you want to spend on your bike
  • look into the other activities you want to participate in as well as cycling

When selecting a cycling trip, the above points must be considered and don’t have enough time to get fit, choose something that is realistically within your reach. Each of our trips note a level of difficulty. Also remember that you will always have van support there for you if you should need a break.
