There Are Thousands Of People Conducting Successful Bicycle Tours & You Can Be One Of Them!
So, you want to go on a bicycle tour, do you?
Maybe you see bicycle touring as:
- A challenge – to ride a certain number of miles or kilometers.
- A goal to reach – to prove to yourself, your friends and your family that “you can do it.”
- A chance to get out into nature and experience the beauty that our world has to offer.
- A way to lose weight and/or get into the best physical shape of your life.
- A unique means of seeing your home country… or even the world.
- A fun and interesting way to meet other people.
- A chance to get away from your work and other responsibilities.
- Or an opportunity to participate in something few people will ever experience in their entire lives.
Bicycle touring can be all these things, it’s true! But bicycle touring isn’t always easy – especially if you’re just starting out and don’t have anyone to guide you through the process.
As a beginner to bicycle touring, you need to learn…
- Where should you go on your first bike tour? How do you pick the best destination?
- How do you find the time for a long-distance bike tour in your busy schedule?
- How do you create a budget and raise the money for your tour?
- What type of bicycle, gear and clothing should you use?
- How do you convince your friends, family members or loved one that bike touring is a good idea?
- How do you find other people to travel with you?
- How do you plan out your route and map out your days?
- How do you find places to eat and sleep along the way?
- What kinds of foods and meals are best for bicycle touring?
- How do you generate press and media coverage for your tour?
- How do you make this bike tour one of the best experiences of your life?
- And how do you design your life so you have the time and money to do more bike tours in the future?
Without anyone there to help you navigate through all of these various topics, it can be super difficult to get your start in the bicycle touring world.
I know how difficult it can be, because I’ve been bicycle touring for over 17 years… and in the beginning, just like you, I didn’t know a thing about bicycle touring. I didn’t know what gear I needed, how to plan out a route, what to look out for once I hit the road, or anything else.
Let The Bicycle Touring Pro Be Your Guide!
I remember when I first starting thinking about going on a bike tour. I knew what I wanted to do (I wanted to ride my bike from Oregon to Mexico down the California coastline), but I didn’t really know where to begin.
In other words, I had the dream, but I didn’t know which steps I needed to take in order to make my dream become a reality.
I didn’t think I knew anyone else who had ever done a long-distance bike tour before, the people at my local bike shops weren’t knowledgeable on the subject, and I had a million different questions to ask.
- Would I need to use a special bicycle for my trip?
- How was I going to carry everything I needed for the trip on my bicycle?
- Which route could I take that was both scenic and safe?
- Where would I sleep at night?
- How much would the trip cost?
- How could I find someone to join me on my bike tour?
- What dangers would I need to watch out for?
- Etc, etc, etc.
I had a million different problems to solve, but I didn’t have anyone to personally walk me through the process.
What I needed was a guide! A mentor! A coach! – I needed someone who had done a long-distance bike tour themselves and would be willing to sit down with me and talk me through each and every thing I was going to need to know, buy and prepare for the journey I had in mind.
Lucky for me, I happened to know someone who had gone on a long-distance bicycle tour!
My Aunt Christi and Uncle Tom (pictured above) had years prior to my first bike tour, conducted a bike tour of their own in Ireland… and it was only through talking with my aunt and uncle that I learned:
- How to repair and maintain my bicycle.
- How to plan out a safe and enjoyable bicycle touring route.
- How to carry all the gear I’d need for my journey on my bicycle.
- Which gear and clothing items I would need to obtain for my trip.
- How to find affordable places to sleep at night.
- Plus, a whole lot more!
Without my aunt and uncle coaching me through the process from beginning to end, I don’t think my first bike tour would have ever become a reality!
Yes, I could have gone out on my own with a bicycle and a backpack (something a lot of first-time bicycle tourists do) and tried to conduct my first bike tour on my own, but it would have been a painful and sloppy experience… and I may have never completed the bike trip as intended.
You Don’t Want To Make The Same Mistake!
And that’s the thing! Each and every year, thousands of people go off on their own and conduct bicycle touring adventures all around the world. Many of these people are able to figure things out on their own, muscle their way through the mistakes they make and keep on going.
But the sad reality is that a great number of first-time bicycle tourists end up riding for only a day or two before they quit and return home in defeat.
They quit because they went out uninformed, because they were riding the wrong type of bicycle, because they didn’t know how to pack and carry their gear, because they were carrying too much weight, because they chose the wrong route, because they selected incompatible travel companions, because they were physically or mentally unprepared, and a million other reasons.
In the end, these people quit because they didn’t have someone to guide them through the bicycle touring process from beginning to end.
If they had had the right information at the start of their travels, they would have not only completed the bike tour they set out on, but they would have returned home from their cycling adventure with memories that would last a lifetime and stories they’d be telling their friends, family members and children/grandchildren about for years to come.
That’s why I created the website here at BicycleTouringPro.com and why I created the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program. Because I want YOU to conduct your first bike tour and come home from that experience with happy, positive memories you’ll be telling people about for the rest of your life.

How Much Is This Going To Cost?
Honestly, a lot less than it should.
When I asked my Bicycle Touring Pro readers on Twitter and Facebook what price would make this program a ‘no-brainer’ and dozens of you said it should be as much as $750 or maybe $100 a month for six or more months. And another handful said you’d be happy to pay $1,000 USD or more.
But when I offer things to my readership here at Bicycle Touring Pro, I like to price things at a place that makes it a ‘no-brainer’ for you, and sets me up to be able to handsomely over-deliver on value.
Since the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program is a relatively new service here at Bicycle Touring Pro (I’ve used this information to help people conduct bike tours all around the world for more than 10 years, but have never put the materials into a video training program like this before), I’m going to give you a sizeable discount for getting in on the ground floor.
With that said, the original price of the the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program was going to be $497 USD. But because this is the first time I’ve even done this particular program, I’ve dropped the price by more than $400 USD, so now the entire BTP Video Training Program is only is $97 USD.
I see this Video Training Program as MY investment in YOU.
I love my readers/followers. I’m deeply grateful for the community we have built at Bicycle Touring Pro, and my goal is always to do anything I can to give you the best chance at living your dream and making your first bicycle tour a complete success.
The bottom line is that I didn’t want you to have to even think about joining this program.
If you’re reading this, you already know how I do things and how worthwhile it will be.
I can’t wait to work with you… and I can’t wait to hear all the incredible stories you’re going to have when you return home from your first amazing bicycle tour!
Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly will I learn with the BTP Video Training Program?
You will learn everything you need to know in order to confidently plan, prepare for and execute your dream bike tour anywhere in the world.
How does this video training differ from “The Bicycle Touring Blueprint?”
The Bicycle Touring Blueprint is a book that you read, with no real way for you to ask questions or receive personal feedback. Whereas the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program is an online video training course that not only visually teaches you everything you need to know in order to conduct your dream bike tour, but allows you to ask questions, receive advice tailored to your specific needs, and interact directly with the Bicycle Touring Pro.
Do I need to be an experienced cyclist?
No, you do not need to be an experienced cyclist (or bicycle traveler) to participate in the BTP Video Training Program. The information is designed for people who are new to bicycle touring and are wanting to get started. If you’ve never done a bike tour before (or you’ve only done short bike rides and want to do something a bit longer), then this program is going to be perfect for you.
I don’t have a bike tour in mind yet. Will this video training still help me?
Yes! It’s not a problem if you don’t yet know where you want to go bicycle touring or how long you plan to be on the road. Some of the people who sign up for the BTP Video Training Program will come in with very specific goals, while others in the group will not yet have a plan. This is perfectly fine! As part of the course, I will work with you to find an ideal location for your first bike tour, and I’ll help you with every step of the process after that, so you will have the information needed to not only conduct your dream bike tour, but the ability to go bicycle touring practically anywhere in the world.
Does the video training come with a community element?
Yes! When you sign up for the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program, you will be granted access to a private Bicycle Touring Pro Facebook page, where you will be able to interact with me and all of the other Video Training Program members. This will be your place to ask questions and receive immediate personal feedback, learn and share with others in the group, and potentially find other people you might like to travel with in the future.
I’m not very tech savvy. Will I be able to participate in this program?
Yes. If you know how to watch YouTube videos, open emails and click on links, then you have all the technical skills required to participate in the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program. If you run into any technical problems along the way, I’ll be there to help you out!
How much time does the Video Training take?
There will be approximately 7 hours of training videos for you to watch. In addition to that, there’s the time you’ll need to set aside to actually plan and prepare for your bicycle tour. You do not, however, have to watch all of the training videos. The Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program is designed to be done on your own schedule. So, if you’re in a rush, you can always skip ahead to the parts of the video that interest you the most, or come back to the videos when you have more time.
Can I do the video training on my own schedule? Or do I have to show up at certain times?
The BTP Video Training Program is self-study, so you can complete the video training series whenever works best for you. You are welcome to watch the videos and complete the program materials at your own pace.
What if life happens and I can’t complete the program right away?
Not a problem. As a member of the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program, you get lifetime online access to the course material and free updates forever. You’ll be able to go back any time you want and watch the videos, access the course materials, etc.
What if I don’t like the program or I don’t get the results I wanted?
First off, I think you are going to love the information you receive inside the Bicycle Touring Pro Video Training Program. But of course, I realize it can’t be a perfect fit for everyone. At Bicycle Touring Pro I believe you should only pay for the things that actually get you results. So, the Video Training Program comes with a 30-day no questions asked money-back guarantee. If for any reason the course isn’t what you had in mind, simply shoot me an email and you get your full refund.
