After a fun trip to the bike shop to obtain some new and much needed supplies, it was time to prepare the bikes for the upcoming trip in April. (More on that later)
|New rear rack for B's bike!|
|Time to mount the front rack.|
|1 watt blinky for safety.|
|3, count em 3, bottle cages!|
|Add a new computer.|
|And Voila! One Trek 520, ready to tour!|
|Time for a front rack on my ride.|
|Swapped out the rear rack, but already had everything else so my bike was finished much quicker.|
|The happy chariots, side by side and ready to roll.|
I said I'd talk more about our upcoming trip and now is the time, so here are a few details. We have a trip planned for this April. Not the big, year long, cross country trip we are ultimately going to do, but a shorter, 6 day/5 night trip. Kind of like our test ride trip, only a bit longer both in time and distance. We will be leaving on a Monday and returning on a Saturday.
I haven't mapped out our route yet, but I am thinking it will be right around 160 to 170 miles total. We plan on camping 4 of the 5 nights. We are hoping that the campgrounds will be open in April. If not, we will get our first taste of stealth camping.
We are also hoping that the weather will be good. April in this part of the country can be really unpredictable. Sunny warm and in the 70's one day, cold, windy and snowing the next. Could be an interesting trip. We are fully prepared though either way so I am not too worried.
I will post more about this upcoming trip later as we iron out more of the details.
Until then, enjoy these pics and please feel free to add any comments you may have.
