Lightweight tents – a home away from home
When you're bike touring, you have to carry all your equipment under your own power, so you want to save weight but also make enough to be comfortable for the trip. Unless you're staying in cabins or hotels, you need to carry a tent with you. For some, a bivy sack will suffice in the summer in warmer climes. Those travelling in the mountains should be a little better equipped. In this category, you will find lightweight and compact tents for one to three people. In addition to weight and pack size, you should also consider the design and room layout. If you travel with bike bags, you should plan a little more space in the tent for luggage.
