We took the tandem out today to give it a spin and test out our new gear. Many people have asked us how we are going to travel with all of our stuff like clothes and food and water and tents and sleeping bags etc. In a later post I will get into the specifics but for now a picture tells some of the story.
Instead of pulling a trailer we have opted to go with panniers. What's a pannier? They are basically saddle bags attached to both the front rack and rear rack of our bike. These bags will hold all of our gear. Did I say all of our gear? That means everything we need for three months to fully support ourselves. I guess we will find out how little we actually need to live day by day.
Keep it rollin
