– Ask locals. Often there are old railway tracks, cycle routes and a less busy roads that only locals can advise you on- don’t be shy, in general people love cycle tourers and are happy to give you directions, and in my experience some piece of free fruit, vegetable or cereal bar to keep you on the road.
– Make sure you have iq Option Buchhaltung comfortable shorts. I cannot stress this enough.
– Find out if your touring buddy (unless you are riding solo) snores. Really- it’s important. If so, pack some earplugs. Covering large distances requires a good night sleep, especially if you are sharing a tent.
– Finally- make sure you have secure pannier bags and are happy with your bicycle arrangement. There is nothing more frustrating than realizing your heel smacks against your pannier bag on every pedal stroke or your pannier rack is wobbly. Have your bicycle checked by a mechanic before you set off, and familiarize yourself with basic repairs such as fixing a puncture/ replacing an inner tube, replacing a broken spoke, tuning your gears and tightening your brakes/ replacing your brake pads.
