Getting Ready for a Long Bike Ride

July 18th, 2012

I am getting ready for a long bike trip with my girlfriend, her sister and her sister’s boyfriend. I have been looking at touring bicycles because Jack tells me that my bike is not really suited for a long trek on the Blue Ridge Parkway. He actually has several bikes, including a folding Brompton that will carry panniers on both the front and the back. He would let me borrow it, but the problem is that there is a great difference in our heights and his bikes are too small for me to ride with any comfort. At 6 foot 3 inches I have trouble finding a lot of things that are right for me, but this is not going to be a real issue in this case. Of course I have a great bike that I use for every day riding around the city of High Point and weekend rides out in the country. It just is not suited for a long trip.
