Cycling trip: how to plan?  
by   bloghunter

If you are planning a cycling trip, you should choose the right route and make sure that you will be comfortable on the bike. There are many different types of roads to suit any type of cyclist, and it is important to think about how long and hard you can ride before getting tired or having to rest. I have included some tips on how to plan your cycle trip below:
You need to decide the road you will take.
The next step is deciding the road you will take. This is a bit more complicated than it sounds, as there are many factors to consider. You need to think about what you want to see and do, as well as considering the climate and weather in your destination country (and even regionally), and also taking into account the time of year when you plan on traveling.
For instance, if your goal is simply to ride around Iceland with no particular agenda or sights that need seeing because all you want is beautiful scenery and fresh air then there's no issue with visiting during wintertime; however if your goal is specifically seeing waterfalls at their fullest flow then spring would be better because most of them freeze over during winter months. If this isn't important then any season could work just fine!
Consider start with a shorter one.
If you're new to cycling, start with a shorter one. You can always go longer next time!
The reason for this is that it will be easier for you to plan and organize everything as well as make sure that your body can handle the trip.
You have to know how to get supplies on the way.
There are many things to consider before you start your cycling trip. You have to know how to get supplies on the way, for example.
 Bring enough food and water: Make sure that your bag has enough space for food and drinks for each day of cycling. Plan ahead and pack accordingly!
 Bring a bike pump: It's important that you bring one so that if anything goes wrong with your tires, they can be repaired quickly and easily (plus it makes sense).
 First aid kit: If something happens while biking around town or on trails where there aren't many people around--like falling off your bike or scraping yourself up against something sharp--this kit will come in handy!
Make sure you are comfortable on the bike.
Wear cycling shoes. Cycling shoes are the most important part of your kit, as they provide a rigid sole that allows you to pedal efficiently and comfortably. If you don't have a pair already, buy some!
Pack a backpack with everything else you need for the day--snacks/water bottle/spare tubes/tools/etc., as well as anything else that's not on your bike (iPad charger).
Knee sleeves can help prevent knee pain if it's an issue for you. Compressa kneesleeves are stretchy neoprene sleeves that fit over the front of each leg. They offer extra supports for knees and try to reduce the pressure.
Cycling is a great way to see the world and get fit. You don't have to start with a huge trip if you're not sure about your abilities, but even short ones can be rewarding if you plan them well. Remember that cycling is an active form of transport so make sure you are comfortable on the bike before setting off!
