Bicycle touring visitors in Peninsula

More bicycle touring visitors have been passing through our stores here in the Northeast Ohio area lately! Above is Rita, who is from Philadelphia, and stopped by the Peninsula store on July 10 during a ride around the Great Lakes.

Rob Hatfield stopped by the Peninsula store to say Hi before catching a train to Banff, Alberta to ride his Salsa Fargo on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.

What makes these folks able to head out on a long-distance bike tour, sometimes on their own? It starts with a desire, something on your bucket list. Another thing is overcoming your fears, and to help with that, the folks at Adventure Junkies put together a list of the 11 Fears Bicycle Tourists Face & How to Overcome Them.

Thinking about a bike touring trip of your own? We've got experience long-distance touring experts in all three Century Cycles stores, so stop in and tell us what your dream is. We can help you select and order the right bike and touring equipment!

Our stores are all located on routes of the Adventure Cycling Association Route Network. Our Medina and Peninsula stores are located on the Underground Railroad Bicycle Route, and our Rocky River store is located on the Northern Tier cross-country route.

To see more photos of bicycle touring visitors who have visited all three of our stores, check out our Bicycle Touring Photo Gallery.
