So I have actually only been riding for about 3 months, bought my first bike in November. Since then I have logged about 400km on my MTB. I would say about 50/50 trail riding and riding on hill/flat paths.
One of the first goals I made for myself was to try and ride to the beach from here, stay over (camp or hotel it), and ride back the next day. Its about 50km from my house, which to some may sound like nothing, but the farthest I have done is about 30km in a day, and that was quite a challenge to me.
So my question is, does anyone have any tips for taking on the trip on a MTB?
should I invest/borrow some semi-slicks?
any tips on saving weight? I can buy food there btw
PS I am planning this trip for late march/april depending on weather, to beat the heat/traffic.
