Have you ever considered doing a bicycle tour? What’s to stop you? Bicycling all of the roads will provide you with a wealth of intriguing and unforgettable experiences. Of course, you must first prepare yourself with travel experiences for these Vietnam Cycle Tours.

1. Selecting a Bicycle

The purpose of a mountain bike is to go down steep, rocky mountain routes filled with boulders and jagged pits. When you drive this vehicle, you won’t have to worry about flat tires or terrible roads. You will not be afraid to run on gravel roads. However, due to the bike’s weight, the wheels are a bit large, requiring the user to exert considerable effort.

Because this is not a speed bike, the time spent on the road will be somewhat extended. Your automobile must have a braze-on if you are doing a self-loading tour across Vietnam (a part that installs a saddle used for transporting luggage…). To avoid sand spraying in the face while riding in the rain, extra fenders for the front and rear wheels should be installed. You should use wheels with 36 or more spokes to avoid frequent spoke breaks.

Road bike: Using this type of bike gives you the benefit of speed, but you can’t go too fast on rough or rocky roads. Because racing bicycle tires and inner tubes are so thin, they are easily destroyed when they come into contact with obstacles. It’s best to pack a spare car cover and tube if you’re driving this type of vehicle. Another thing to keep in mind when utilizing this vehicle is to be cautious when riding in the rain because the vehicle is prone to slipping.

Touring bike: A “touring bike” is a bicycle that is meant for touring and nomadic travel. It is not as heavy and short as a mountain bike, yet it is not as narrow as a road bike. The handlebars, which are easy to brake, and the system for changing gears are all of great quality. On long, windy journeys, the handlebars are folded like a hoe, allowing the operator to easily adjust the control position to alleviate fatigue, reduce wind resistance, and be more calm.

2. Luggage transportation

It is recommended to use a pair of hanging baskets and a small chest behind to store tools and personal belongings. If you have a waterproof type, there is no need to prepare a rain cover for your luggage. Preparing these rear-loading items will take away the burden of luggage on the top of the steering wheel, which is both difficult to control and unsafe for you.
