Product Description

Product Description

Over the past decade or so there has been a revolution going on in the tourism industry that has taken off like a wildfire – cycle tourism.
In this book award-winning Australian journalist Gary Corbett takes an in-depth look at the burgeoning cycle tourism industry and how it is attracting thousands upon thousands of new devotees aged anything from eight to 80-plus years on a yearly basis.
In his easy to read writing style, Gary informs readers about just how addictive guided, self-guided and bike and barge touring really is and how to book a tour that “ticks all the boxes” in Europe, the USA or hundreds of other destinations around the world.
Every aspect of researching, booking a cycle tour to successfully completing a tour is covered in great detail. To make the search for cycle tour operators and holiday cycling destinations all that much easier, an extensive list of cycle tour operators from across the world is also provided.
As an added bonus, the second half of the book details how to plan and successfully complete a long distance cycle tour of anything from a few weeks to a multi-year around the world odyssey. With years of cycle touring experience behind him, Gary takes aspiring long distance cycle tourists through everything that is required for them to prepare for the trip of a lifetime.
Without question the book is an invaluable resource for anyone contemplating booking a holiday with a difference – even if you are a novice cyclist.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cycle Tourist 7 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I was interested to see what a potential 'bible' on arranging cycling holidays would include. I was please to find that many of my views were re-affirmed, but much more extensively. The book, although factual, is in written in an easily read and relaxed format. I was not so interested in the long distance 'round the world' type tour but the rest of the book is great for reference and would even be ideal for those starting a cycling holiday business.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book for the Cycle Tourist 23 Sep 2013

I came across this great book, while researching for our cycling tour. Everything you will need to know is in this book, from which saddles you will need to which is the best tent to take. I wish I had found this book earlier, I wouldn't have had to spend so much time on the internet. If you are going on a cycling tour this book is a must have, as it is so informative on everything you will need and to think about for your trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great review for anyone planning a cycling holiday 7 Oct 2013

I have just finished reading the Cycle Tourist and I am know inspired to book and organized cycle tour. I have been a keen cyclist for some time now to help improve my fitness, but never previously thought about combining my passion for cycling with my other love - travel.
In particular the chapter on bike and barge cycle touring really caught my interest, as it is a holiday idea that I know I would enjoy. As a single female I do not always feel safe travelling alone, but the idea of being on a barge with a group of like minded people sounds just perfect.
I really enjoyed reading the book and can actually already see myself completing a tour. I found the book very reader and user friendly, given the large amount of information and the resources provided. I thoroughly recommend this publication to anyone contemplating a holiday with a difference.
