Choosing the right package
Going on such a trip requires a certain type of gear. I spent some time picking mine.
Making sure to have reliable equipment with you is important. However, you can have the best bike and the best gear, but if you are not strong enough to pick up your bike, if it tips over, or you don’t have the physical endurance to complete the journeys you want to take then you won’t have much fun.
Let’s face it, many people today lead inactive lifes and are out of shape – mostly by choice, but also in part due to obligations of work and family. If you want to enjoy such a ride to the fullest, you need to take some steps to condition yourself. You as the “pilot” are an integral part of the package that is rolling around the globe.
