Have you been dreaming of your first self-supported long distance mountain bike ride, but you don't know where to begin? Then this tour is just what you need. Brett Davidson, a veteran of the Trans North Georgia (TNGA), Cross Florida ITT, and the Huracan 300 routes, will help you learn the basics so you can plan your own bike packing adventure. The tour will include instruction on:
- Planning (how many days you should plan for, which routes to choose)
- Packing (what equipment to bring, what not to bring)
- Nutrition (how much water, what food to pack)
- Execution (navigation, first aid, other challenges)
Brett has also ridden routes across the country, so he is the perfect resource for learning about which trail might work well for your skill level and fitness level. In 2015, this tour runs July 9 thru 12 and September 4 thru 7.
