Planning a Cycling Trip? Comprehensive Checklist Website You Canít Do Without

Dale Campbell - Bent Fork Chronicles Editor

Club Members Dennis and Terry Struck have been traveling and touring via bicycle for years. To assist with the planning and packing for their adventures, they have compiled a number of checklists and information lists to use in preparing for their next adventure. Fortunately, for the rest of us, they have made these lists available to the public via their website. Found at http://www.struck.us/CheckList/BicyclingChecklist.html , the lists and information are reflections of their learning experiences along the way. I think we can all agree that the best lists come from experience. As is noted on the web page, the objective of each list is to “have on hand the LEAST NEEDED Amount, Quantity, or Volume that meets the Situational Requirements.”

And, as Dennis indicates, the site averages about 3,000 hits a month. With the availability of the World Wide Web, other cyclists around the world benefit from the experiences that the Strucks have had over the years! Dennis says that about once a month, he usually gets an email from someone outside the US. In case you may have forgotten to bookmark the website, just remember to do a web search for “'Bicycle Touring Checklist.” The Struck’s webpage will come up as one of the top three returns.

So, you now have access to that compilation of lists for packing or planning travel. Check that off your checklist!
