For the previous yr I’ve been surveying readers right here at BicycleTouringPro.com and asking them, “Have you ever been on a bicycle touring previously?”
I gave them solely three choices to select from:
No, not but
Sure, greater than as soon as in actual fact!
152 folks answered this specific query… and listed below are the outcomes:
68 folks (44.74%) reported having not but been on a motorcycle tour; 45 folks (29.61%) reported having been on a couple of tour; And 39 folks (25.66%) reported having been on a single journey by bike.
These outcomes excite me!
They excite me as a result of there’s a giant inhabitants of readers right here at Bicycle Touring Professional who’re right here to get data on learn how to decide the precise gear, plan out their route, and put together for his or her first bicycle touring journey. If I’m able to assist these folks, both by the free articles right here on the location or by my e-book (The Bicycle Traveler’s Blueprint), then that makes me really feel actually good!
Secondly, there are a variety of individuals right here who’ve been on one bike tour already and are coming again for extra! That is nice as effectively, as a result of I need folks to see bike touring as extra than simply one thing you do as soon as in your life after which overlook about. I’d wish to see extra folks have the chance to journey by bike and are available again to it time and again if that’s one thing they’d love to do.
And eventually, I believe it’s actually wonderful that there are such a lot of folks on the market who’ve gone on a number of bike excursions and are nonetheless getting back from extra. Clearly, there are much more “bicycle touring execs” on the market than I believed. It appears as if the bicycle touring way of life is alive and effectively… and the way forward for bike journey is wanting vivid.
What about you? Have you ever been a on a motorcycle tour previously? Are you planning one for the longer term? Let me know by both leaving a remark beneath or by taking my bike touring survey right here.
