Maybe it would be better to say in addition to 'touring' -- additional words -- to indicate that there isn't anything particularly wrong or objectionable about that word tour, just there are other, additional words that can add some new notes and variations and dimensions.

And sometimes there is a mood for a saunter or a slow meander -- it can be a more attractive prospect than a 'tour,' depending on mood.

An unhurried walkabout on a bike.

It seems to be a way of opening up some new fields.
