Sometimes its not about the destination. Sometimes its about the things you do and see along the way.
What's Great about bike camping is that anyone can do it. Trips can range from long to short. You can camp, cabin or hotel and the pace is not a race. You can even do a portion of your trip on the train or have the train as an optional back up plan. You are also not limited to the type of gear you have.
