Seniors Find Adventure on Bike Tours

There seems to be no lack in the number of adventures for seniors to enjoy on a bicycle. One organization notes that  “Each bend in the road should bring breathtaking vistas and fresh smiles. Our tours are all painstakingly planned, thoughtfully paced, and full of vivid adventure. Eat well, pedal happy, stay curious.” Seniors can enjoy breathtaking scenery, unique points of interest, fabulous cycling, and distinctive lodging by their choice of routes and tours.

Seniors, Cross Your State?


If you are in pretty good shape, you can set out for a day-long ride like my brother or a longer one with stops in between. Enjoy each day at your own pace and and where you can savor the good life every evening. Choose your route carefully before you set out. Maybe a ride through historic covered bridges like those in Madison County Iowa, past picturesque farms and barns covered with hex signs in Pennsylvania Dutch Country or choose to visit classic country stores reminiscent of a bygone era in historic Virginia.

How About France, Germany or England?

For you senior gourmets, you could plan on a trip that featured the specialties of the country you are touring.  Here is an example of what you might do in France on a bike tour.  Many bike organizations feature a TREK bike that is one of the best for touring.  If it was good enough for Lance Armstrong, one would serve you well.

Old Folks on Spokes

Great slogan! These are trips that are done at a reasonable pace adjusted to the needs and abilities of the group. My niece took a bike trip through Tuscany with a group of friends on a tour. You’ll discover that its great to travel with other riders like yourself and just like taking a cruise like many seniors do, it’s with a group of people they know or don’t know.

 So go to Google and input Senior Bike Tours.  You can pick and choose from dozens of opportunities, costs and various routes.  Enjoy biking. jeb
