Welcome to Armchair Bike Touring

Armchair Bike Touring (version 3.0) is a bike touring game that let's you take a bike tour while sitting at your computer!

The game consists of three bike tours. The first one of 100 miles is followed by a 200 mile tour and then a 300 mile excursion. On each tour, you'll ride over different terrain past all kinds of scenery, deciding when to eat, where to stop for the night, fixing flat tires and broken spokes and occasionally meeting Road Angels offering free hospitality.

At the beginning, you're an inexperienced Newbie. Completing your first tour, makes you a bike touring Novice ready to tackle a 200 mile tour. After that, you are a full-fledged Bike Tourist with everything it takes to ride 300 miles. While the tours get longer and harder, you get tougher, too.

In addition to bike touring experience, you also earn points by eating before you are hungry, stopping for the night before you are exhausted, staying within your budget, and not having to hitchhike to the nearest bike store for emergency supplies (more about points). See if you can crack the top 10!
