Cycle tourism – one of the most eco-friendly and useful types of tourism to health. The cycle tourism attracts not only with feeling of speed, freedom, but also interesting excursions and a possibility of good rest outdoors. Cycle tourism – this type of rest which is preferred by people courageous and active. The travel by bicycle is always adventures, it is an opportunity to see the cities and the countries from an unusual foreshortening, it and decent physical activity. But at the same time cycle tourists receive a huge charge of cheerfulness, new bright impressions of the seen landscapes, speeds, aromas of meadows and the woods. The cycle tourism can safely be carried to an ecological type of rest, the travel by bicycle doesn’t harm the nature at all.
In our opinion the cycle tourism is deprived of shortcomings, and here a lot of benefits. First, bicycle tourism allows to overcome very long distances for a campaign. Only in auto motor-tourism of distance it is more, but in this case you are limited in the choice of the road to vehicle opportunities, deprived of contact with the nature. The bicycle allows to enjoy fast change of impressions and to see the huge area without preventing to feel at the same time each meter of the road, each whiff of a breeze.
Secondly, as already it has been mentioned above, the high speed of a cycle tourism provides change of impressions. On a cycling trip you can make the way one day through snow among high tops, then go through the dense wood through numerous fords. But it not so, nothing prevents to reach to interesting, not passed by bicycle, the site, and farther to make pedestrian walk for one two days. And at the same time by bicycle it is possible to reach such places where by car it is impossible to pass owing to the bad road, and on foot it is impossible to reach owing to their remoteness. Generally, for bicycle tourism there are no unattainable places. Thirdly, if other types of tourism are limited in the choice of the area (it is impossible to go to a mountain campaign on the plain, in a water hike it is impossible to go to the desert), then all areas are available to a cycle tourism. Besides, cycle tourism all-weather type of tourism. It is possible to go to cycle campaigns both in the winter and in the summer, and in the spring and in the fall.Fast dynamic campaigns with various obstacles, frequent change of impressions and the long covered distances are characteristic of bicycle tourism. Cycling trips can take place practically in any area and at all seasons of the year. The cycling trip allows to reach those places which are unattainable otherwise owing to the remoteness. Not without reason people with choleric character, as a rule, are engaged in bicycle tourism. The cycling trip has to be cheerful and active.
Bicycle tourism has some features in comparison with other types of tourism. It is, first of all, big intensity of the movement and, as a result, the cycle tourist manages to see much more, than other. The cycle tourist for a travel uses more difficult technique – the bicycle, and the bicycle group and each her athlete separately, is a participant of traffic, and is obliged to submit to traffic regulations.
