Bike Touring

One of our favorite things to do is to travel by bicycle.  We first dipped our toes into bicycle touring in 2014 when we set our sights on riding across the United States.  Since then, we have fallen more in love with it.  A bike tour, whether it be on or off road, provides the perfect opportunity to disconnect from the hectic and stressful nature of everyday life.   It allows you to travel at a pace where you truly connect with your surroundings and have the opportunity to meet people and discover unexpected treasures.  Below we have compiled a list of all the bike tours we’ve completed so far, as well as a handful that we have thought about or are actively planning!  We hope that you enjoy reading about our trips, and hope that they might inspire you to plan some trips of your own.  Anyone can do it. The important thing is just getting out there, and the hardest part is always the first step (or pedal stroke, in this case).  Happy pedaling!
