How to Plan a Cycling Tour

At the time of this writing, the quarantine and lockdown protocols have slightly eased up. You might be thinking about taking on an adventure after being stuck in your home for the past months. If you’re outdoorsy and love the feeling of the wind in your hair before the pandemic, why not ease into nature once again by booking a Cycling tour?

Bike tours are an excellent way to experience nature while maintaining social distancing. However, keep in mind that the fight with COVID-19 is far from over, despite the lifting of the lockdown protocols. Careful planning should still be done if you want to participate in such an event. If this is your first time putting an activity like this together during this pandemic, this blog post will help you get everything you need in order.

How to Plan a Cycling Tour in the Middle of the Pandemic


It is a must that you screen the possible accommodation options you have to ensure that you choose the best one. Make sure to look into how they handle accommodations and the protocols they put in place in response to COVID-19.


When you are on the road, it is essential that you communicate clearly with the people you meet along the way. If you feel that some people are coming too close, you need to be clear that you want to follow the distancing protocols to keep everyone safe.

Put the Trip off If You’re Sick

Should you feel any type of fever or other symptoms, it may best that you put off the trip until you will be feeling better. Even if you test negative for COVID-19, it is still a good idea not to put a strain on your body if you are feeling under the weather.

Don’t Depend on Other People

When you plan your bike trip, make sure that you will be able to be self-sufficient for all the aspects of the trip. Everything from your drinking water, to the towels that you will use while on the road should be brought with you. Do not attempt to borrow these items from other cyclists or other people that will be doing the ride with you. This will be part of the attempt to avoid the spread of the virus.

Minimum Safety Protocols

Keep in mind the minimum safety precautions and protocols when you travel. Wear your face mask properly, wash your hands whenever you can and make sure that you always stay at least six feet away from the other people you meet on your tour. This will help make sure that you will remain safe even if you go outdoors and help you get used to this “new normal” situation we are already in.


If you had missed going on trips and travelling because of the pandemic, you may be able to enjoy these kinds of activities again. However, making sure that you plan your movements in advance will make all the difference and will keep you as well as the other travellers around you safe from this unseen enemy.
