Bike touring is one of the most natural ways to explore more of the outdoors. The whirr of your tires rolling over the ground; the wind in your face that becomes cooler and cooler as you pick up the pace—bike rides are something special, and they’re perfect when you’re on the right bike touring trails. Add in a restaurant along the way, maybe a quick stop at a beer garden, and you’ve got a great day out in the saddle for anybody who’s able to ride a bike. And being an accessible, healthy activity for everybody—from families cycling with kids, elderly people looking for a gentle way to spend the day, and those who want to conquer epic climbs in record times—it’s with good reason that bike touring is becoming one of the most popular pastimes across the world. Afterall, all you need is a bike, a route and the will to ride. How many of those do you have?

When it comes to cycle travel, all you need to enjoy your chosen cycling routes is to be appropriately prepared—and to ensure you’re riding the correct type of bike. You don’t want to roll a road bike down a singletrack, for example, and you don’t want to ride a downhill mountain bike on a four-day bikepacking tour of the Alps. Therefore, ride biking routes that are suitable for your specific build or stick to cycle paths if your bike is not built for the off-road. If you keep this in mind when you use komoot’s cycling planner, you can always be sure that your route is the correct one for you and your bike.
