The NMT Bike Club hosts a bicycle touring presentation given by Dr. Catharine Stewart-Roache and Dr. Patrick Roache. Catharine and Patrick have toured extensively in the United States, Trans America, Canada to Mexico, Canada to New Orleans along the Mississippi, and in New Zealand, Australia, France, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, and Austria (along the Rhine and the Danube). Together they have logged more than 100,000 miles and each have ridden the Davis Double Century (200 miles in a day) race/ride. They love cycling and usually go for a tour on their birthdays which recently included Cape Cod, the Erie Canal, and the Adirondacks. The presentation will cover the pros and cons of going alone or in a group; what kind of bike to use; where to go; what to bring; and safety issues.
