You enjoy active travel tours, but you don’t have the time or money to go on them very often. I have a hunch that keeps a lot of people from enjoying more bike trips and other active travel vacations. Fortunately, there’s a solution to the problem.
Overnight Bike Tours
Thanks to a fairly new website called Bike Overnights, you can join or plan a brief overnight bicycle vacation without breaking your piggy bank or free-time bank. BikeOvernights.org allows bike riders to plan short bike trips with other biking fans. These are not full-blown bike tours that last for a week, but they’re also not those daily neighborhood rides that are starting to get a little old.
Bike overnights provides information about bike trips all throughout the United States and Canada including such destinations as Vermont, Ontario, Washington, Colorado, and Pennsylvania. There’s even an event planned for New Zealand.
Active Travel Planning Tools
In addition to the actual bike getaways, you can also find some great information about planning your active travel tour including:
- family touring information
- deluxe touring details
- some how-to articles
- recipes & food
- routes & rides
- travel tips
- bed & breakfast suggestions
- ideas for bargain travel planning (see “Cheap”)
