General Discussion / Newbie, just signed up for the TransAm tour!
« on: October 18, 2013, 09:21:31 am »
Howdy gang,

I just signed up for the TransAm tour and am really excited for the ride.

This is going to be my first bike tour, so I’m certainly jumping right into the deep end.

Originally I was inspired by a friend who rode cross-country several years ago and blogged the experience. Ever since, I’ve wanted to do it as well. Circumstances have come together to make 2014 the year it will finally happen.
There’s still a lot I have to do; buy a touring bike (can’t ride 4k on my carbon roadie!), get some gear, break in the bike, figure out tips & tricks I wouldn’t even think to ask… and lots more.
Right now, I feel both competent and a little overwhelmed. There’s no question I can handle this physically (I’m in very good shape), but logistically, I don’t know what I don’t know.

I don’t have specific questions (yet) so if anyone wants to chime in with thoughts, experiences, advice or just a ‘how do you do?’, please feel free!

Cheers,
Aaron
