Q: What is the best way to train for a Trek Travel trip?
A: The best way to prepare for a Trek Travel trip is to ride your bike. You should feel comfortable getting back on a bike after riding an average of 35 miles for several days in a row — in a combination of hills and level stretches and days with mostly rolling hills — the kind of terrain that you can expect to find on your vacation. If for some reason you cannot ride regularly or are limited in the amount of riding you can do, it is still important that you engage in another cardiovascular activity that suits your lifestyle, such as jogging, walking, swimming or aerobics. Please contact Trek Travel at 1.866.464.TREK for more information on preparing for your vacation. A Trip Consultant will be happy to assist you.
