Ride The Rockies – Bike Touring At Its Best | Road Biking Fitness Plans and Advice | OutsideOnline.com
Beyond a simple test of endurance, a bike tour is part outdoor vacation, part road trip, and, if it’s a group event, part rolling party. The mass rides—where a registration fee buys shuttle services, space for camping, tech and sag support, and stocked aid stations—are definitely the best option. You get to enjoy all the high points of touring without the logistical hassles of doing it yourself. And there are more of them than ever. Events like Cycle Oregon (seven days), the Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (eight days), and Iowa’s Ragbrai (six days) are drawing crowds because they offer killer scenery and first-rate riding. And that’s not even mentioning the fundraising rides, which introduce a whole other motivational element. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
