By former BikeTours.com tour advisor Chloe Krueger

After finishing two self-guided tours on my own, I’ve compiled a list of the top reasons, illustrated by photos, why you too should consider a solo self-guided bike tour.

1. Cycling at your own pace

Go your own pace

2. Wearing the same clothes for the duration of the tour. (Shhh, don’t tell anyone!

3. You can eat pancakes for lunch without anyone else knowing. Really though, you can eat ’em for breakfast and lunch….and dinner.

4. Overcoming challenges. Like how to flush toilets?
