Cycling Mindset

Really getting myself into a mindset to cycle 6000kms around the North Sea Cycle Route, helped by reading Scott Wallace's blog He has completed a quarter of his trans America route from east to west - he has been meeting some good & generous people      I have been getting my gear together Today I bought a nice sleeping mat & a trangia for cooking  The key is to keep things light so I have been buying stuff with that in mind My tent has already seen service in Shetland & weighs in at 3.6lbs & the rest of the gear is pretty light too I want to try it out before I go... If it ever stops raining Had a run out on my bike the other night to see what it feels like with front panniers - pleased with feel of the  bike although the butterfly handle bars make going around corners at speed a bit tricky
Might kip on the new mat in the back bedroom tonight to see how it feels

  1. The fenders really highlight the whitewall tires as well, yet another feature that makes it one of the flashiest and fun-looking cruisers around Affordable Cruiser Bicycle.
