For those who are more adventurous, adventure bikes can be very exhilarating. However, to make sure your adventure bike expedition runs smoothly, you should have all the necessary requirements. Adventure cycling is all about biking (naturally) and self-sufficient, where it’s your responsibility to transport all your gear from one destination to another without anyone’s help or support. These adventures are very budget-friendly and easy to organize. However, in order for these adventures to be truly memorable, make sure the locations you choose are adventurous and challenging. Here are some of the best adventure bike routes in the world:
1. La Route Verde:
This new Canadian route runs from east to west through the small province of Quebec. The route has been carefully constructed to pass through rural areas and enjoy the benefits of open roads.

In addition to the famous hot springs, large forests can also be found.
