THE BIKE

Not having ever done bike touring I reached out to friends of friends… read online reviews, articles, bogs etc to try to understand what I needed since I was starting from almost zero. The one thing that I already owned (a few times thanks to the thief) was a bike. Despite being advised that it is not the right bike for the adventure due to the carbon frame being more demanding on the body. But being stubborn and liking my bike (not to mention the financial aspect of investing in a touring bike that may never get used again) I stuck with what my butt knows.
