Sub 36 Hour Overnighter, the S36O tour

You may be very interested to pedal on an overland trike journey, but may doubt your ability to do so. This is an extremely challenging and difficult endeavor to say the least, but the rewards are beyond compare, and will change you forever. An old Chinese proverb says: “He who returns from a journey is not the same as he who left.” It is very true! You will see life just a little differently.

Is there an easy way to give overland triking a try? Yep, sure enough, there is, and our recumbent expert Mark Waters, owner of Backcountry Recumbent Cycles in Bend, Oregon, has absolutely perfected the path ahead if you are interested. He leads 2-4 day tours, enough to get your feet wet, but not so much that you’ll end up a wasted shadow of your former self. For example, he calls one of his three day journeys an S36O, meaning a Sub 36 Hour Overnighter. Want to learn more? Under the Trike Touring menu you will find his introduction HERE.
