CycleNuts is an alternative cycle touring experience where seeing and socializing take emphasis over speed and (ugh!) sweat. Join along on bike-way touring adventures to destinations near and far. Expect a slow pace under 11 mph average with CycleNuts 50% downhill guarantee. Pictures, merriment, and other tourist activities heartily encouraged.

The goal of CycleNuts is to encourage casual cyclists and cyclists interested in casual social cycling to tour together.

The vision of CycleNuts is a society that tours together at casual social speeds for the cause of fun, cycle-touring, cycling awareness, and producing lots of great memories and smiles.

What To Expect - Casual social cycle touring where exercise is optional; everybody finishes together; and nobody is dropped, abandoned, or left to fend for their self (unless they wish to be). Allow plenty of time from your schedule for the nature of these tours: pacing with the slowest rider, picture taking, looking at cool stuff along the way, eating and trail-side breaks. Helmets are not mandatory. CycleNuts tours give preference to bikeways - bicycle trails and protected bicycle lanes. Routes may include dedicated bicycle lanes on streets, bicycle ‘friendly’ streets, and of necessity, regular streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and unpaved trails. Darkness may be experienced on evening or early morning rides.

SAG-free - CycleNuts tours, including travel and over-night accommodations, are self-supported with the slightest of guidance. SAG is not provided. Carpools and caravans are individual choices. Emergency road support – if necessary – may be a creative, collective group effort. Or, you may need to fend for yourself. Be prepared with options. State in comments if interested in forming a carpool, caravan, or sharing overnight or travel accommodations.

Recommended Gear - A cycle (uni, bi, tri, tandem, E, recumbent, or cycle/trailer rig). Protective gear of your choice. ID. Front and rear lighting. Communication device. Spare tube. Patch kit. Air pump. Wrench kit. Cycle lock. Water. Energy bar. Funds for refreshment breaks and emergencies. Sun screen. Pest repellent.

Recommended Preparation – Pre-check brakes, tire pressure, lights and ridability. Consider what you are wearing on tour and what you may need for changing weather conditions.

Yes – CycleNuts will offer cycling events in all four seasons – what else could be expected from CycleNuts?
