Trial Runs





  • Beefed-up wheels with Threadlock in the spoke ends to prevent loosening.
  • More durable and waterproof compression sack (replacing the trash bag) for tent transporation.
  • Front rack and bags graciously lent to me by a co-worker/fellow biker to better distribute the weight across the bike.

Actually trying this whole “plan before you go” thing this time. I’ve been riding my loaded bike around Charlottesville the past few days to get a feel for biking with front and rear bags, to see how my wheels hold up, and to get me semi-in-shape for round 2. The plan is to start Bike Trip Round 2 tomorrow, Saturday, June 18th!

Unrelated, here are a few pictures on a hazy day on Skyline Drive.
