Planning for a Self –Supported Bike Tour.

When you decide to go on a self-supported bike tour, you are opting to take the reins and plan each aspect of it. Having this type of control can be extremely freeing, allowing you to schedule according to your cycling level and preferences. However, it can also be a daunting task as you are now the only one responsible for the trip from beginning to end. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you opt for a solo trip.

Start with an overview of your gear. You will be providing every bit of it, so make sure you bike is on par for the trek before you, have a comfortable helmet ready as well as a comfortable saddle, and have all storage spaces set. You will be responsible for any maintenance or repairs that need to be made along the way, so have the tools necessary for any on-the-road fixes that might occur. You also need to figure out the distances you plan to be riding each day and find lodging that will work into your schedule. Take time to plan for the food that will be eaten before the tour, during, and in the evenings, as well as hydration.
