Planning and Packing for Your Personalized (and Pretty Close to Perfect) Pedal Tour
Tuesday April 10, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Seattle Flagship REI, 222 Yale Ave. N
Longer days and later sunsets are making it seem like summer will actually return. Is this the summer you’ll take that amazing bicycle road trip you’ve always wanted to do?
If so, be sure to catch Jeff and Louise Davis’s presentation this coming Tuesday at REI, “Planning and Packing for Your Personalized (and Pretty Close to Perfect) Pedal Tour.” They’ll go from soup to nuts on how to plan a DIY credit card bike tour (“camping out” in motels and B&Bs), including route-finding and tracking down food and lodging along your route. They will also show you how to print out route maps and cue sheets personalized for your trip. They’ll bring along their panniers to show you how to pack everything you need for a week- or a summer-long trip in a single pannier per person. There will also be useful hand outs (and a checklist) on the evening’s topic.
Whether your dream is swooping through the mountains, gliding down rail trails or exploring unusual sights in obscure places, learn some tricks on how to create your own “happy trails” that the bicycle tour companies will be jealous to have missed. Planning your dream trip all starts this Tuesday night at REI. And it’s free to attend!
