Light Line Road Bush Camp

So you’ve probably got a bike, and you love the idea that a bike can take you to many places on a budget…. welcome to cycle touring!

1 – Set A Date

First of all, you’ll need to decide on a date. Usually the best part of 2 days will be suitable for your first cycle tour. Its best to take it easy first, otherwise the opportunity may pass.

2 – Location

Follow a couple of guys on an adventure to crack the trip of a lifetime. 

Then, decide on a location. If you live in Brisbane I recommend either D’aguilar National Park (either Scrub Road Bush Camp or Light Line Road Bush Camp), Stradbroke Island (Cylinder Beach) Or anywhere along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

3 – Equiptment

 

You will require some gear to get started with cycle touring. below is a list I created that has pretty much everything you’ll need for cycle touring. Some items are not as necessary as others, but you can definitely get up and going for under $500 in total.

4 – Route

 Map out a route that you will ride. Ride With Gps is a great resource to use. If you have a GPS device (I’ve got a garmin edge 500) you can actually follow the route. Instructions Here.

5 – Experience!

Grab a friend or go by yourself.  Make sure you have plenty of food and water for the trip. Enjoy!
