Book Description

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to cycle off into the distance with no fixed destination? You’re carrying everything you need, have planned this trip for years and are off on the adventure of a lifetime. Perhaps Bike Touring Europe appeals? Or a Canadian transcontinental expedition?

This book describes everything you need to know about embarking upon your first tour, a sort of Bike Touring Survival Guide. It highlights some of the more common mistakes made by cyclists and is packed with advice on training, equipment and logistics of cycle touring.

Years ago, Dan Stevens was midway through a round-the-world trip and found himself in Australia. He bought a bike with a rack for his camping gear and took off on a self-supported journey that changed his life forever. Thousands of miles later, he still enjoys cycle touring as much as he did pedalling those first miles out of Adelaide.

Some of the topics he covers in this fantastic book include:
• Planning
• Buying a bike
• Food and nutrition
• Accommodation
• Equipment
• Mindset and focus
• Training
• Cooking and eating
• Water
• Navigation
• Health & Hygiene
• Technique
• Riding Skills
It’s green, it can be extreme but by reading this book it will no longer be a dream! Bike Touring is extremely healthy too - the only power needed is from your legs!

So what are you waiting for? Get that bike, load it up and hit the road!

Note from the author

I was 24 when I first started cycle touring and since then it has been an instrumental part of his life. I made plenty of mistakes – buying unsuitable bikes, taking equipment I didn’t need, not eating properly, going to places I didn’t enjoy bike touring in...the list is endless. This book covers these mistakes so you can make informed decisions on whether cycle touring is for you.

Bike touring basics are covered within this book, with plenty of handy hints and tips to get you up to speed. I hope that you too become hooked on bike touring – I assure you there is no better way to travel and experience new countries and cultures.

The best part? You can go as slowly or quickly as you like. Enjoy.

As the author said there's nothing more satisfying than hitting the open road under your own steam.I'd done it years ago with friends and still have great memories from those trips. When I think out all the equipment and clothes we needlessly taken I wish I'd known about this book. From preparing your equipment to preparing mentally there lots in this book that will make your trip run a lot more smoothly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read but mostly common sense 25 Jun. 2014

This book is pretty short and hence a quick read. It is well written and structured. The main problem is that I learnt very little, even though I am new to cycle touring. Everything is pretty much obvious or only relevant for very ambitious cross continent riding (for which I would think a much more comprehensive book would be needed.) It's OK and considering the low cost I don't regret the purchase.

Not really a book, really just an e-pamphlet but if you have never done any bike touring then it tells you almost everything that you will need to know. If you have done a multi-day tour before then you may pick up the odd snippet but not much more.
