Out & Back-Touring "lite"
Out and Back – Touring “Lite”
If you are interested in trying something a bit more challenging than a single day ride, but have questions or concerns such as: “Do I have the right gear”, “can I ride for days in a row” “how do I feed myself”, “I don’t like to sleep in a tent” etc. – this is your chance to “Test Drive” an overnight tour!
Out and Back tours are designed to introduce cyclists to longer, multi-day rides (overnight) in and around the Kingston Area – but with overnights in locations where there are B&B’s, cottages or similar accommodation (although arrangements for those wish to camp can be made). This removes the need to carry much gear, and a dry, comfortable evening and night can be assured, thus allowing time and space to socialize with your fellow riders and to enjoy the scenic country locations we will be visiting.
Also, we usually can arrange for a “Support Vehicle” to drive up on Saturday to deliver food and any other gear required, and (if necessary) act as a pick-up vehicle (though one-way trips are not encouraged). As we are renting accommodation, there is a charge for these rides which will cover your accommodation (with camping options when available) and generally a breakfast. Depending on the locations, participants may be responsible for their dinner (at local establishments) or we may all share a home-cooked meal and split the costs – this is decided once the registrations are known and participants can express their preference.
Tours will be led by experienced club members who know the area and can “ride” you though any challenges you may face - So you can sign up in confidence – knowing you are up to the challenge of developing your touring legs while discovering another level of enjoyment your bicycle brings to your life!
So come join us for an overnight ride - meet new friends and discover how far you are ready to go!
