The "go light" self-sufficiency of backpacking meets the freedom of the open road in Bike Touring. Today, more and more people are turning to the bicycle, not just for exercise but as the ideal touring vehicle -- economical, portable, fast enough to get where you want to go and slow enough to see everything along the way.

Bike Touring is the comprehensive guide to all aspects of touring: buying and maintaining equipment, developing riding skills, how to plan and pack for a tour, and how to live and camp while on the road. Raymond Bridge offers expert advice on choosing the right bicycle and gear for the many different styles of touring: practical advice on transporting bikes and riders by auto, rail or air to the starting point; and important safety tips for riding in heavy traffic, on highways, or on back roads. He supplies detailed instructions for emergency roadside repairs and wheel-building; appendices list touring organizations, sources of equipment and maps, and other references. The wealth of information in Bike Touring will enable any cycling enthusiast to plan the perfect tour: short or long, economy or first class, close to home or on another continent.
