General Discussion / extremely new to cycle touring
« on: September 04, 2022, 12:48:55 pm »
Hello, my name is Tom, I'm a Canadian Vet medically released from the Military with a desire to do some cycle touring around European countries or somewhere in that part of the world. I know nothing about this, looking to learn as I think this would be a pretty cool adventure. So where to start? I do have a couple of questions;
  • What type of bike would one recommend? My cycling experience is primarily Road, triathlon and time trial.
What about accommodations, is it usually hostles or something else that is beneficial for cycle touring.
  • Are there informal groups that tour together. I would like to tour with someone but not a formal tour group.
Basically I would like to tour somewhere in Europe in 2023 with at least one other person for a few weeks staying in affordable accommodations. I'm pretty flexible on the details, I'm looking for adventure and share some laughs along the way. I'm a pretty chill guy that is retired and is getting a little bored.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
