This is the first test ride with fully loaded panniers in preparation for the 4 month cycle tour starting at the end of June.I will go ito what and how I pack over the next few weeks. The only things missing from this set up is the top rear rack pannier which will contain the art materials I will be taking with me.
I cannot express properly the excitement I feel with the planning and the preparations for this tour. The Bike felt absolutely wonderful and I could not stop smiling at how stable, smooth and easy to ride The Bike is to ride with all the gear. I will be going into why I chose this bike in a later post.
