One of the main advantages of cycling is that the cargo can be transported on trunks. The carrying capacity of a bicycle on a hike, as a rule, is in the range of 20-30 kg, and only in some cases it can reach 50 kg or more. On those sections of roads where it is difficult or dangerous to ride or carry a heavy bike, the load is carried like an ordinary backpack.
Another advantage of the bicycle trip is that the choice of a place for halts of an overnight stay has a wider range than in other types of tourism. This can be objected only by car mototourists and water drivers. But be that as it may, the mobility of a bicycle is higher than a motorcycle or other means, such as kayaks.
At any moment, a cyclist can turn into a tourist-pedestrian, leading or carrying a bicycle through obstacles. Therefore, places for a short rest and overnight, as a rule, are chosen not near the road, but at a distance of 1-2 km from it, and sometimes even more, by examining the area or interviewing local residents.
