Getting Ready

In addition of “gearing up” for this trip, I’ve taken several test rides.   If you ever decide to go bicycle touring, I HIGHLY recommend test rides!   Not only does it test out your gear you get a sense of what your daily life will be, what items you really need, what items youre missing, and many other “lessons learned”

Lesson 1:   Don’t let the short trips fool you!   My first two outings were from my house, overnight to Lake Benbrook.   While this is a great route and follows much of the Fort Worth bike trails, the fooling part is most of these trails are flat.   This can fool you when you start expanding your trip to other locations and terrains.
