Epic Tours:

From weekend trips to round-the-world adventures, epic is in the mind of the beholder.

Bike touring is a wonderful and enriching way to explore the world. It yields such interesting photos and stories.

We're not afraid to say it: bike touring makes you a better person.

And this is where we say it.

Read about those adventures and the gear that makes it possible -- the gear we have on, BikeTrailerShop.com and BikeBagShop.com.

Submit your Bike Touring Photos

When we send a bike rack or pannier off to a customer it's always with the hope that it is going somewhere amazing -- epic.

But the accessories we sell can't take their own photos (yet). So we need you to send us photos from your bike tours to exotic locations. Send us anything from that shot of you and your bike at the top of the summit to that shot of your perfect rack and bag setup. Submit your bike touring photos here and we'll let you know when we publish them.

Leon Mccarron – The Cycling Reporter – Completes 14,000 Mile Adventure

Leon Mccarron completed his epic tour on March 5th in Honk Kong having ridden 14,000 miles from New York. Leon is a film maker who decided to set out on this bicycle tour with the goal of plenty of video and film along the way. The tagline of his voyage “1 rule – I can’t turn down an interview”.

Leon’s tour took him across the US, through New Zealand and Australia, then through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China and Hong Kong. Leon wrapped up the journey with a final leg from Paris to London. Leon’s rig was laden down with HD video equipment, a tripod, a mic and all of the equipment necessary to store and upload what he captured.

We were excited by the opportunity to help outfit Leon’s tour, providing a Wandertec BONGO bike trailer and a full set of Ortlieb panniers to transport all of this video equipment not to mention all of the essential camping gear, clothing and food and water.

Leon’s photo gallery offers up an amazing collection of images from around the world. Have a look at his YouTube channel with some samples of his video which I’m sure will be growing now that he is home with time to do some video editing. And scroll down on the home page of Leon’s site to see his stories and reports about his epic adventure.
