Imagine exploring the world at a pace that keeps you completely aware of all your surroundings. Now imagine getting from one place to another, completely by the power of your own two feet. Well, yes, walking can do that too, but what kind of fun would that be. I’m talking about bike tours.
Catching speed down a steep Bolivian mountain, or discovering a city like Bogota in Colombia. Travelling through the most interesting places of the world, seeing all the sights, and staying fit along the way. Bicycle touring is an epic adventure that everyone should try. Riding along the beautiful scenic routes of different locations around the world. Everywhere from Ecuador, to Europe, to India, people ride bikes to get around.
