This tour will not be my first rodeo in this arena. Having done several short (300 to 400 mile) and one long (2400 mile) tours, I have a good idea what will work for me on the road. As such, my bike is custom from the ground up. Being 67 years old, my git-up-and-go has got-up and went and I am hoping this trip with provide me a reminder. As such, e-assist was very appealing to me and is now integrated into my ride. It is a Bafang 750 watt motor, with a true mid drive set up.
This will be a credit card tour, as I have camped out on most of my other tours. Distances traveled will reflect motel location more than any interest in pedaling long distances. I really do like a shower after spending several hours on the road. Not having to set up or pack camping gear is a decided plus.
