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.

The Hills Are Alive Tour: Sights of ‘The Sound of Music’

To some, folding bikes sometimes look dorky and/or awkward thanks to a much smaller wheel diameter. But in many cases, looking like a dork is the price paid in order to visit many beautiful and interesting places where normal bikes are too bulky to travel.

Of course, there is always an exception to the rule such as in the case of Montague Bikes, who have managed to design full-sized folding bikes that look great.

Recently, Montague rider Hernani Cardoso undertook a journey from Austria to Bulgaria after being inspired by the amazing visuals from The Sound of Music.

The trip was long and somewhat difficult, but in his online interview with Montague Bikes, Cardoso recalls the details of his trip with clarity and enthusiasm.

Riding in and around Salzburg it is a very unique experience. The views are wonderful and you can visit all The Sound Of Music sites on a bike. Salzburg was a surprise to me and I will be glad to go back there.

To make his trip, Cardoso used an Extrawheel Voyager bike trailer with Extrawheel panniers to get his stuff across the border and through the urban and rural European terrain. Bike Shop Hub is the U.S. distributor Extrawheel trailers and accessories. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us for more information.
