Touring usually means very long multi-day (or multi-week) rides carrying a lot of gear (camping, cooking, clothes, etc) on the bike. Can also apply to unloaded/creditcard touring involving using hotels/motels instead of camping.

Typical touring questions might cover:

  • How to carry everything
  • How to carry less stuff
  • On-road maintenance with no shop access
  • food/water for a long ride
  • picking a bike or components
  • figuring out routes
  • Issues surrounding very long rides
