The 3 Best Cycling Adventures for 2020

Feeling lethargic during the winter? Need a little travel motivation to get you through it? Book a cycling adventure for spring or summer to stay motivated through the winter. Train up during winter at the gym for the adventure of a lifetime! Come spring you will cycle through iconic landscapes, with the comfort of traveling with a tour company who will carry your luggage between stops, provide gear, and provide assistance if you pop a tire.

Cycling adventures have a bunch of advantages over your average vacation. You’ll stay mobile and have complete control over your journey and stops. You’ll connect with the locals, and return home relaxed and ready to roll back into the normal day-to-day. Plus you get to skip all the hassle and extra costs from shipping your bike.

 

Stay Mobile

A cycling adventure is a great way to stay active, experience a new country, and perfect for those who need flexibility. You’re more mobile than traveling on foot so you can move faster and see more sights. Stop when you want to stop. Is there a coffee shop calling to you? Or a food truck that smells yummy? Pick and choose sightseeing stops. Your pace is up to you!

Travel Like A Local

A cycling adventure is a more authentic way to travel. Your bike takes you right up to the locals instead of keeping you at a distance in a tour truck. You won’t believe how friendly locals are when they see you cycling. You may even be welcomed in for some meals and conversation. When you leave North America, you’ll discover cycling is a major mode of travel all over the world, not just a trend for cool people in big cities. You will connect with the locals more intimately when they see you traveling just like them.

Return Relaxed And Rejuvenated 

Engage your heart and muscles while learning about a new culture. Don’t worry about holiday weight gains, you’ll come back from vacation in better shape and happier than when you left. A cycling adventure is the perfect vacation when you consider all the endorphins, sun, good food, and fresh air that it brings. Not to mention a bike-powered vacation is more sustainable than a car, plane, or boat-powered vacation. Combine a cycling adventure with a rail pass and there are no limits to how many sights you can cram into one vacation. 

Now that you’re inspired, pick one of these three awesome cycling adventures in iconic destinations and get excited for 2020. Three options are all you need, these adventures cover many iconic cycling destinations and routes in Tuscany, Cuba, and Vietnam.
