Teen Treks’ Bike Touring Education Series is our way of keeping an active and connective bicycle touring community and introduce young cyclists into the world of touring!

We’re gathering bike touring experts, past leaders, past trekkers and other inspiring bike travelers into brief, interactive live events to learn more about gear, packing, touring logistics, experiences and the adventures found in bike traveling.

On this page, you can find links to join upcoming Zoom events and check out past webinars in the series. We look forward to having you join the conversation!
