More and more people practice bicycle touring to travel around the world. This is a booming reality that cannot be questioned. In this regard, much has been written on the subject, but this time we propose you a synthesis with the most important aspects that you should not forget before starting your trip.
Before you start any trip you should check and review your mean of transport, that is a key point because there are several aspects of your bicycle that are fundamental in order to perform a safety activity. You should also take a look to the current condition of the wheels of your bike, the brakes and lights. Do not forget to carry basic bike replacements with you in case any incident occurs. From CompeGPS we strongly recommend you to at least learn the basic mechanic issues regarding your bike. This knowledge will help you if unexpected problems come up.
We are not willing to start an unproductive debate about this issue, but we have to admit that the use of bicycles in cities is getting bigger and bigger although cycling is treated differently in each culture.
More and more people practice bicycle touring to travel around the world. Bicycle touring generally means self-contained cycling trips over long distances, which prioritize pleasure, adventure and autonomy.
