Why did I create “The Essential Guide To Touring Bicycles?”
After running the website here at BicycleTouringPro.com for more than five years and after receiving thousands and thousands of questions from people just like you who wanted to know what to look for in a quality touring bicycle, I decided a few years back that I should put together everything I know about touring bicycles and compile it all into the world’s greatest resource for touring bike buyers.
Over the last three years, “The Essential Guide To Touring Bicycles” has quickly skyrocketed to the most popular piece of information on this entire website, and has helped thousands of people from all around the world find their ideal bicycle touring vehicle.
For people who are new to bicycle touring, the process of finding a touring bicycle can be daunting. You have to do a bunch of research, figure out what kind of touring bicycles are available, decide which bicycle features are important to you, negotiate the buying process, ask for advice on which type of bicycle you should buy, and a whole lot more. At the end of it all, many first-time buyers still aren’t sure if they’re getting the right bicycle for the type of bike tour they wish to participate in.
