Traveling by bicycle can be a beautiful and liberating experience. You have all the freedom of walking, but with a much faster pair of wheels. But it is not always easy to best know how to go about it.

Here are the top tips for how to travel by bicycle.

Make Sure You Know How to Fix a Bike

Bicycles have a nasty habit of breaking just when you need them most. This doesn’t have to be a problem if you know how to fix basic problems with the bike. You don’t have to be an expert, just know the basics.

It can also be very useful to have a toolkit on you. This will help you fix the bike if necessary. Don’t bring a heavy one though. Just a spanner and screwdriver that fits the contours of your machine.

Tent or Hotel?

If you have the money, it can be nice to stay in hotels or bed and breakfasts of course. But unless you know where you’re going and where the hotels are, you will need a tent. You can carry a tent on your back with a rucksack, or tie it to the back of the bike.
