Bicycle touring is the act of riding a bicycle for days or weeks on end as you stop along the way to take in the sights, snap photos, talk to people, eat food, and sleep along the way.

There are companies all around the world that organize bicycle tours for individuals and small groups… and these companies will provide you with a bicycle to ride, map out a safe and enjoyable route for you to take, plan out all  your meals and hotel stays, and even have a professional bicycle touring guide escort you along the route in some instances.

Every single year, thousands of people from all around the world go on bicycle touring vacations. Whether you are looking to vacation in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia or Oceania, there is likely a bicycle tour that you could participate in nearby.
