Come down to the Seattle Bike Expo and hear two of your local bike tourists share knowledge and funny stories.
You enjoy riding your bike; you dream about riding through the wilderness or past countless castles, wineries and museums. Maybe you've done the STP and the RSVP every year for the last decade, you enjoy camping, you enjoy home stays, you like hotels except when the bill hits your meager savings. Please join us as we teach you the tools for planning a successful low-cost bicycle trip. Learn the skills you need, hear the funny stories while they open the door for a wonderful bike holiday.
Topics include proper route selection and planning, equipment and packing, training plans, logistics, accommodations, meals, weather, safety, and group compatibility. Longtime Cascade member Saul Kinderis has more than 30 years bike touring experience and has toured a huge variety of U.S regions and many different countries. Sandie Smith learned to ride her bike when she was five, and never stopped. She did her first multi-day ride through the Blue Ridge Parkway when she was only 16. A Cascade ride leader these days, she was new to bike touring in 2013 when she rode from Vienna, Austria, to Belgrade, Serbia. - See more at:
