General Discussion / Re: finding places to sleep- continental divide route
« on: September 10, 2018, 02:05:50 pm »
I did the USA part of the Great Divide a couple of years ago. We camped all but 2 nights. We camped at a mix of about 3 campgrounds, camping places that had an honesty box to pay and had toilets only (no shower or shop) and places on public land that a fire pit was all there was. (a couple of these places had a long drop)
The route is mostly in the wops so finding somewhere to camp is not a problem.

I have just completed a ride thru Serbia, up Romania, across Hungary, across Slovakia and across the Czech Republic. I did not get chased by any savage dogs. Just the standard bark and chase then give up types. And sod all of these.
Do not let Westinghouse comment about Eastern European dogs put you off. It is an amazing place to cycle tour.

General Discussion / Front Suspension
« on: July 26, 2017, 01:53:54 pm »
I am looking to do a 2 month cycle tour. Is there a noticeable advantage to ride comfort having suspension on the forks of a hybrid bike. I am looking for a bike to buy and would like to hear opinions as to suspension vs rigid fork. Maybe a carbon fork perhaps.
