There is no better way to travel and explore than from the seat of a bicycle. With two wheels under your feet, the world goes by at a perfect pace; fast enough to get somewhere and slow enough to admire the details along the way.
On your bicycle, you are free. You can ride anywhere you like and stop anywhere that takes your fancy. You can nap when you’re tired, knowing that you don’t have to rely on a bus to reach your next destination. Just stroke those pedals to zip into town for a hearty meal or head down a quiet dirt track and make dinner on your campstove. The choice is yours.
Back on your bicycle, you’ll pedal along to a constantly changing series of sensations. One moment you might be daydreaming and watching the birds. The next, you’ll be thrust into full concentration as you spin your legs furiously to tackle a big hill.
A sense of achievement greets you at the top of every climb as you crest the summit proudly, if a bit weak in the knees. With the hard work over, you can fly down the other side with ease, stopping at the next store of course for a well deserved ice cream.
Later in the day, you might pitch your tent in a campground for the night, take a room in a hotel, be invited to spend the evening with a local family or head back home again.
In that flexibility is the most wonderful thing about bike touring: it can be anything you want it to be.
