Bike Tour Tips for All Riders

A bike tour in Outerbanks, North Carolina, can be a great way to spend a couple of fun-filled hours with the family or a grand adventure for cycling enthusiasts. Whether you’re a casual cyclist or interested in putting some serious miles behind you, the 105 miles of trail along the Outerbanks will not disappoint. If it’s your first time cycling on this path or participating in a bike tour, here are some tips and things to know to help you be better prepared.

Book Your Bike Tour in Advance Although there may be last minute spots available, most tours fill up fast. Secure your spot by registering well in advance. Some tours may require reservations up to 6 months or a year in advance while others may only require a couple of days advanced notice.

Prepare for the Terrain For the most part, the bike paths that go through the Outerbanks are relatively flat and make for an easy ride. You ride may encounter a few bumps along the way as you pass over a bridge or two, but most riders find the terrain to be pleasant.

Choose Multi-Use Paths for Family Rides Exploring the charming towns of the Outerbanks by bicycle is a great way to spend a day with the family. If you don’t plan to do any serious riding and are just out for a leisurely day trip, skip an organized bike tour and create your own. Multi-use paths are popular with families and leisure cyclists. These paths weave their way through numerous towns and villages. Many multi-use paths connect to each other, so families don’t have to worry about vehicular traffic when transitioning from one path to the next.

Faster Cyclists Should Use Wide-paved Shoulders Fast cyclists are discouraged from using multi-use paths because of the slow traffic. Not only are these paths for leisure cyclists, but they are also used by walkers and joggers. If you’re participating in a bike tour designed for serious cyclists, you’ll most likely be required to use the wide paved shoulders to ensure enough separation between you, slow-moving traffic, and vehicular traffic.

Reconsider a Summertime Bike Tour Although summer is a popular time of the year for people to visit the Outerbanks, it can be an especially dangerous time of the year for cyclists. With the increased level of traffic, on-highway cycling can be treacherous. If summer is the only time you can make it to the Outerbanks, it is best to stick with tours that use off-highway paths.

Bring Your Gear While bicycles and helmets are available for rent, bringing your gear is the better idea. If you’re planning on traveling the entire 105 miles from Duck down to Hatteras, the journey will more comfortable on your bike.

Hop Off the Bike and Check Out other Attractions Riding 105 miles is exhausting. Break up the journey by hopping off the bike and checking out attractions along your journey. The Outerbanks are known for horseback ridings, paddle boarding, hand gliding, kayak fishing, golf, and much more. Many of the tours include sightseeing and adventure opportunities as part of their tour packages. Take advantage of these packages and explore the Outerbanks off the bike trails.

Pack Accordingly Before you head out on your bike tour in Outerbanks, make sure you pack according to the weather, the season, and the path. During the summer months, you’ll want to bring insect repellant to keep pesky mosquitos away as you ride through woody or marshy areas of the trail. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen and make sure to pack plenty of water and snacks. There are certain points on the trail that are unpopulated and resources are limited. You bike tour guide should be able to provide you with a list of what to pack and what to leave at home.
