Loaded or Self-Supported Bicycle Tour

Among the tours you can take, a self-supported or loaded tour is certainly the most traditional. Among the decisions you'll have to make is how to carry your gear. That, of course, is impacted also by whether you camp and cook for yourself or if you sleep in local accommodations and eat in restaurants. This couple is cycling the panhandle in northern Corsica, France. They are camping most nights but are traveling very lightly with small, low-rider front panniers, one handlebar bag, rear panniers, and a BOB trailer pulled by their tandem.

Getting your tandem and your BOB and panniers to Corsica from outside of Europe is not an easy task. At Bike Rentals Plus we rent tandems, panniers and BOBs to make the logistics easier.
