Touring cycles also have places for at least three water bottles. These bikes can also be recumbent bikes. Even tandem bikes can be modified to be touring cycles.

Touring cycles is also a commonly used phrase to refer to touring motorcycles. This is a classification of motorcycles that have several things in common. They are built for long-distance travel, or areas with heavy traffic. They generally have larger gas tanks than sports bikes. These bikes also have windshields in order to cut down on winds and sun against the rider’s face. These bikes might even have larger dashes, for things like CD players and two-way radios. Touring models also have upright seats and are more comfortable for riding during long distances.
