Things to Consider Before Cycling Touring Australia and Other Places

  1. 1. YOUR STARTING CHECKLIST CYCLE TOURING
  2. 2. If you have ever contemplated taking your love of cycling and combining it with a holiday, you’re not alone. In Australia, and all over the world, cycling enthusiasts are seeking ways to combine their passion with their time off, and the result has been an explosion in cyclists taking to the road both on well-worn and undiscovered routes.
  3. 3. But if you’ve never embarked on one of these adventures before, we’ve put together some useful things to consider before you book your annual leave!
  4. 4. How Fit Should I Be?
  5. 5. Cycling is one of the best ways to achieve physical conditioning and aerobic fitness at the same time. But despite this, a lot of weekend road bike riders and mountain bikers say that they’re “not fit enough” to do a full blown cycling holiday. But the great thing about cycle touring is that there is no required level of fitness. If you are planning your own holiday, you can plan daily ride goals to suit your personal fitness level. A good starting point for intermediate riders is around 75 kilometres, which many would class as a “comfortable” ride across a whole day.
  6. 6. Bike Choice
  7. 7. At Ivanhoe Cycles we have a full range of bikes that you can choose from before embarking on a cycling holiday. Touring bikes are solid all rounders, with good weight, stability over the occasional rough patch of road, and are easy to mount on racks. Road bikes are a great idea if you are planning a route that will be exclusively on good roads. But if you are taking this option, it’s better to stick to tried and tested routes, so that you and your bike make it through your holiday in one piece.
  8. 8. Planning Essentials
  9. 9. Probably the most important rule of cycle touring is to plan your route well before you leave. Knowing where you will stop each night will give you a target to work towards, and also allow friends and family to check in with you while you’re on the road. The other cardinal rule is to pack as light as possible. Investing in lightweight, warm clothing, energy bars and gels and a phone with long lasting battery are a good starting point. Once you’ve put together your planned route and lists, run your ideas past an experienced cyclist to check that you haven’t missed anything, and to help improve the strength of your plan.

Whether it’s choosing your equipment, planning your route or buying a new bike, we are here to help make your cycling holiday the best experience possible. IVANHOE CYCLES
