I'm eager for information about Historical Trails Cycling.  They have been leading an Oregon Trail tour every other year. I was hoping to make the 2010, but this group seems to have disappeared.  Old address,, comes up empty.

Gear Talk / Raleigh Sojourn

The Raleigh Sojourn is my first touring bike, bought for light touring. My normal ride is a road bike (Specialized Roubaix). For its maiden voyage I took the Sojourn on a familiar 75-mile route with about 5K feet of climbing. It literally wore me out. There was a brisk wind yesterday but I am curious to know if this is normal. I can usually do this route at 15 to 16 mph.  On the Sojourn I was down to 12 mph and completely spent.  Is this to be expected when switching from a road bike to a touring rig?
