A large part of the enjoyment of cycling is being in the great outdoors,
and cycle camping can seem a very natural extension of that. On our camping tours the camaraderie of the group makes the spirit of the day last longer as everyone relives the events of the day in an open space, rather than disappearing behind closed doors in a hotel. Watching the sun set while sipping a glass of wine or a cup of tea with friends, waking to the sound of birds twittering in the trees and having breakfast sitting in the sunshine can really make your day!
Yes, you have a bit more luggage to carry, but it's practically unnoticeable unless climbing up a mountain, and even then using a lower gear and slightly slower pace will keep it from being a struggle.
