The Bikes

Buying quality bikes pays off in the long run. Over 30 years I have had a dozen bikes but only 3 of them were used for long distance touring, the others were  lightweight street bikes or for off road use. The touring bikes are:

  • 1984 Lotus Eclair
  • 1989 Schwinn High Plains Aluminimum
  • 2012 Surly Long Haul Trucker (current bike)
  • 2016 Motobecane Mid-Drive Experimental ( in build stage)

Bicycle Touring as a lifestyle
