I hold a key position with a small company and want to do the Trans America Bike Race, 2021. I am the only one in the company in my position, and have been with them for 5 years. It took 2-3 years to become efficient/effective, and the company is growing. I enjoy my job, appreciate my employers, and feel appreciated by them.

The summer is also our busy season, so my absence could have a significant impact. I don't want to have to find a new job, or start my own business, but I really want to do this ride, and I am aging quickly.

Do you have any experience with this? Can you offer any (realistic or sarcastic) advice?

Am new to touring but planning on TABR 2021. Have entry-level Specialized Diverge E5 gravel bike, equipped with front and rear racks, Brooks B17 saddle, and three water bottle cages. Am afraid my gearing won't be low enough for the tour. Considering modifying E5 with Shimano GRX600, or buying Disc Trucker, if I can get one. Local bike shop is checking on availability. Thoughts? Suggestions?
