CycleNuts in a nutshell
• Goal: to create bikeway touring opportunities for cyclists of all types to enjoy together
• Mission: to encourage casual cyclists and cyclists interested in casual cycling to tour together
• Vision: a united cycling community that tours together on bikeway adventures for the holistic benefit of all
What to expect - Casual social cycle touring where exercise is optional; everybody finishes together; and nobody is dropped, abandoned, or left to fend for their self (unless they wish to be). Allow plenty of time from your schedule for the nature of these tours: pacing with the slowest rider, picture taking, looking at cool stuff along the way, eating and trail-side breaks.
Helmets are not mandatory - CycleNuts tours give preference to bikeways - bicycle trails and protected bicycle lanes. Routes may include dedicated bicycle lanes on streets, bicycle ‘friendly’ streets, and of necessity, regular streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and unpaved trails. Darkness may be experienced on evening or early morning rides.
SAG-free - CycleNuts tours, including travel and over-night accommodations, are self-supported with the slightest of guidance. SAG is not provided. Carpools and caravans are individual choices. Emergency road support – if necessary – may be a creative, collective group effort. Or, you may need to fend for yourself. Be prepared with options. State in comments if interested in forming a carpool, caravan, or sharing overnight or travel accommodations.
Recommended Gear - A cycle (uni, bi, tri, tandem, E, recumbent, or cycle/trailer rig). Protective gear of your choice. ID. Front and rear lighting. Communication device. Spare tube. Patch kit. Air pump. Wrench kit. Cycle lock. Water. Energy bar. Funds for refreshment breaks and emergencies. Sun screen. Pest repellent.
Recommended Preparation – Pre-check brakes, tire pressure, lights and ridability. Consider what you are wearing on tour and what you may need for changing weather conditions.
