Bike Selection

You are responsible for bringing your own bicycle to the tour in good condition. A multi-speed sport or touring bicycle with a wide gear range is recommended. A triple chain ring would be best. A touring, cross or mountain bicycle would also be appropriate. If you bring your mountain bike, you might want to change your knobby tires to inverted tread tires.
