Now that the holiday season is coming again in a few months’ time, there is so much to consider especially when you are planning on embarking on an exciting cycling holiday adventure!
Making sure you have everything you need for a fun and memorable cycling holiday can be pretty stressful. You may find that you need to pack more than you usually would for any other vacation.
One of the biggest questions you need to answer is this: SHOULD YOU RENT A BIKE AND TRY SOMETHING NEW?
There are some pros and cons for taking your own bike with you versus renting one. You should first ask yourself, “Is my bike up for the task?” Your bike needs to be fit for the style of riding you are going to do. Some people go on cycling trips that suit their discipline, while some may try something new. Whatever your purpose is, having the wrong type of bicycle can lead to difficulties and complications.
If you take your own bike, you have to make sure it is reliable and in good enough condition to be able to withstand the miles you will be clocking up on it. It is important to have your bicycle thoroughly checked and serviced to make sure that there will be no problems during your vacation.
Peace of Mind
One of the upsides of renting a bike during a vacation instead of bringing your own bike, is that you do not have to worry about taking your bike apart, packing it up, and building it back up again once you have reached your destination. Most of all, you will have the peace of mind that you will not be running the risk of damaging your bike during transit.
Testing a New Ride
When you rent a bike, you also get to test out some new wheels. Renting a bike will give you the perfect opportunity to try something new. If you are also considering purchasing a new ride, what better way to assess compatibility than on a multi-day trip, right?
Flexibility and Freedom
If you are planning on traveling before or after the biking part of your trip, rental bikes allow you to get up and go as you please – and this is without having to worry about carrying a bike bag or case around with your or even finding a safe storage space for your bike.
