first surly lht bike tour

Recently we took our first overnight bike tour which went pretty well. For the time being we are making do with the camping equipment we already have, so items are heavier than we'd like. A plus side: although the tent is huge, which adds to the weight, it is roomy and comfy.

Most of the State parks have bicycle/hiker campgrounds and are usually off one of the hiking trails. It didn't take us long to reach the park. After one hour and a half ride, we reached the park. There was some highway riding which was very unnerving.

On the way back, we took a different route making most of the way on side streets with less traffic and most with a bike lane. Along the way, we passed forests, farm lands, wild berry vines and flower stands.

VERY FUN, Juana... and LOVE the yellow bags for your bikes. Highway biking... oh, my--you are brave! I like the idea of the more back roads on the way back... especially with flowers. ;o) Happy Days ((HUGS))
