I leave in one week for a 1000 mile trip. I have my gear together, I have trained, my route is complete. I should be focusing on my finals at the university, but I can't. I watch the man who cycled the world vids everyday. I set my tent up in my apartment every night and sleep in it. I spend way too much time on the internet looking at panniers and touring photos. Does anyone else have any strange pre tour riutals?
I always get obsessed with the maps. I want to know exactly where all the good things are in the area, how high & steep all the climbs are, where we can camp etc. A bit of planning is useful but I always go way to far.
I am planning a 6 week tour through Europe starting in July.....I wonder when my strange rituals will start.
