I have three friends that I've been bent touring with for the last 14 years. We take 7-9 days/385-750 miles and just go, self contained. We've covered 14 states and part of Canada over the years. Each day is a new adventure and the experiences are many. All your senses come alive.

My Photo Album.
I ride tours because they are fun and I can see the country. Better than driving a car. I am proud to say I will never danger the lives of other bicycle riders when I ride my recumbent on a tour.
Some recumbent riders pretend that they race when they ride their recumbent on a tour. Those people are dangerous and should be ticketed, thrown in jail, fined and have their bicycles and privileges to ride a bicycle taken away. Speeding on a road with families and children touring the same roads is dangerous and unlawful.
Touring is for smelling the roses. Some people will never learn the joys of slow riding a recumbent.
