Nearly...


Aaron Teasdale is a good, informative writer. Dispensing with the mystique, he explains what it takes to do bike-camping, thru-biking, mtb touring, whatever you want to call it.

Using his article for adventure cycling, i have put together an overnight kit, which with the addition of access to a shop to restock food, and perhaps gas, would become a several day plus bike camping kit. The bike doesnt weigh too much and rolls well. technical stuff probably wouldnt be the forte, but it would be doable. So - success? maybe/maybe not...tell you after the week end.

Meanwhile i was a sweaty mess last night at Andy cathcart's study. A drop to 212 watts average with a slight decrease in speed to average 33.4kph but - crucially or not! - a max speed of 57.9kph. If i can find the extra 2.1kph i get a case of beer. Woop!

Maybe i shouldnt be such a drunkard...(nabbed from hurl over at bikesatan).

Any chance of convincing you to do a complete photo layout of the entire adventure kit? Looks very impressive!
