Slides from the presentation are available here: http://www.centrebike.org/images/downloads/documents/tourpres2012.pdf

Thursday, October 18th, 6 pm in Room 201 of the State College Borough Building, 243 S. Allen St.

Bicycle Touring can be as simple as an overnight to a nearby location or as monumental as an around-the-world adventure. If you are thinking of a tour next year, it’s time to start thinking about why and where how and whatifs. Maybe you’re just interested in learning what touring’s all about. Either way, join us for a panel discussion featuring local touring cyclists who’ve done a variety of tours from local overnights to cross-country and European tours. We’ll talk about types of tours, planning, equipment, cost, training, resources, and share our experiences with you (and we’ll be showing pics from our tours throughout the discussions).

Our panel includes:
  • Brian Dempsey rode 2400 miles from Arcata, CA to St. Louis, MO during May 2006. He rode with a friend, partially supported the first two weeks. It was a life-changing event!
  • Roy Greenfield is a retired PSU Geoscience Professor and has ridden, with Toby Carlson and others, more than 10 self-supported 2 week rides in Europe staying in moderately priced hotels and B&Bs.
  • Kurt Kunka has crossed-countried multiple times and has extensive local and regional touring experience.
  • Dana Miller solo crossed-countried from D.C. to Oregon in 2010, and will provide a woman's perspective on solo and small group touring.
  • Eric Nord and his brother crossed the country between mid May and July of 1993 on mountain bikes converted for touring.
  • Paul Rito cross-countried from Seattle to Bethany Beach in 2005, combining organized group and solo touring. He’s also organized and led smaller scale tours locally over the last 5 years.
