The bike is loaded with five days worth of gear – tent, sleeping bags, cycling clothes, civilian clothes, pots/pans, cooking gear (Caroline bringing the campstove), food for Monday dinner, Tuesday breakfast, wine, snacks, homemade shortbread cookies (thanks to my inner Martha Stewart ), a book (of course), headlamp, and various other necessities.
Five days/four nights: about 300 miles. I LOVE cycle-touring. Loaded all my gear and did a 30-mile shake-down ride Sunday afternoon. Perfect.
The bad thing? 80% chance of thunderstorms Monday. Just hope it’s not raining when we set off – that’s NEVER fun.
Here we go…..
