Getting Active


To get ready for this trip, we suggest biking regularly beforehand and hitting a few hills whenever you can. We want you to have the best possible vacation, and while there’s no need for hardcore training, you should feel comfortable riding at least 20–40 miles each day and still have the strength and enthusiasm to get up and do it all over again the next day.


To ride safely along the narrow and sometimes trafficked roads, it is important to ride single file and to develop good balance on your bike. Balance can only be developed by riding on the road. We recognize that not everyone lives in an area conducive to outdoor riding, but please keep in mind that while running, riding a stationary bike, spinning and other aerobic exercise will help improve your strength, endurance and cardiovascular health, these activities will not help with balance.


Don’t forget to bring your helmet and water bottle !
You are welcome to bring your own gear, such as pedals, seat, helmet, toe clips and cyclometer, to use with bicycle. However, please inform us in advance if you choose to bring any of your own things.


● How do I prevent soreness while bicycling? Think padding! Padded shorts make sitting on the bicycle seat a lot more comfortable, and padded.

● Should I buy a pair of biking shoes for my trip? Rigid shoes maximize the power of your pedaling stroke, but there’s really no need to purchase a pair of biking shoes just for this trip. Any athletic shoes — provided they have stiff soles—will be sufficient.

● It’s not really going to rain, is it? As much as we don’t like to think about it, rain is possible no matter where you travel. Your best bet for staying comfortable during a shower is to wear quality rain gear that is both waterproof and breathable. A jacket and pants made of Gore-Tex will keep you dry even in the fiercest downpour.

● Does wearing layers really make a difference? Yes! The trick for staying comfortable in fluctuating temperatures is to wear three basic layers of lightweight clothing: underwear (to wick moisture away from your skin), insulating garments (for warmth) and outerwear (toprotect against wind or rain).


● Wear a helmet. Riding without a helmet is extremely dangerous. Our company requires that all guests wear helmets while cycling.

● Ride predictably, defensively and in a straight line.

● When riding with others, ride single file and maintain several bike lengths between cyclists. Allow more distance when riding downhill.

● Do not use headphones while riding; you might not hear traffic coming up behind you.

● Be as courteous to motorists as you would like them to be to you, and get completely off the road when you stop.

● Keep your speed under control on down hills. Use both brakes simultaneously, but be aware that the front brake is more powerful than the rear. Gently pump your brakes on long descents for maximum effectiveness. Check brakes frequently to make sure nothing is loose or dangling.

● Wet slippery roads require extra caution and greater stopping distance —especially on Down hills. Wet brakes must be dried by pumping before they have an effect, so start braking early in damp weather.

● When riding on sand or gravel, downshift into low gear so you can spin your pedals faster while still going slow.

● Obey all traffic regulations. Stop at all stop signs and red lights, yield the right-of-way and use hand signals when turning, slowing down or stopping. Ride on the extreme left side of the road, at a safe distance from traffic.
● Be cautious around road obstacles. It is safest to dismount and walk your bike across railroad tracks and cattle guards. If you decide to bike across them, do so at right angles. Avoid potholes, metal grates, glass, rocks and thorns. Ride at a safe distance from parked cars and watch for vehicles pulling out and/or doors opening in your path.

● You must yield the right of way to pedestrians. Do not ride on sidewalks.

● When making a right turn, it is safest to pull off the road, dismount, look both ways for traffic and then walk
your bike across the road. Never follow other cyclists when turning without confirming for yourself that it is safe to do so.

● Listen carefully for approaching motorists. (Look over your shoulder only if you can do so without swerving.)
● We do not cycle after dark on trips. If you decide to do so on your own, you must bring your own bike equipped with a white light on the front, a red light on the rear and reflectors on the spokes and pedals.

● If a dog chases you and you are not able to ride away quickly, stop your bike and walk out of the dog’s territory, keeping the bike between you and the animal.

● Wear appropriate clothing for bicycling. Brightly colored clothes make you more visible to motorists.

● Double-tie shoelaces and tuck them inside your shoes.

● You should wear corrective lenses while bicycling if you use them while driving.
