Lessons from the Saddle
Pedaling for hours and days and miles give you a chance to contemplate the details of life. Sometimes they’re important. Sometimes they’re not.
Enjoying the Tour:
You Are a Curiosity
Someone pedaling a bike loaded with panniers full of travel gear gets people’s attention and piques their interest. Don’t be shy. Take advantage. They want to hear your stories, tell you theirs, and offer advice. Pedal up and say hello. It will make the ride a lot more interesting.
Wet gear is useless. Get waterproof bags and test them before the tour, just to make sure…even if the forecast is for sunny skies. Rain happens.
