OK- So what in tarnation am I getting my self into? My friend has invited me to join her group on an adventure - December 26 for a few days to ride the Natchez Trace Parkway... Form one end (MS to TN). I guess I would have panniers (SP?) could I add them to my Specialized Dolce Elite bike?). I would need to carry my stuff - Oy Vey! Did I say that? But man wouldn't it be something. We'd camp out... eat what we bring (man I hope there's food I can go find - cause that's the part I am dreading... dried whatever... yowza!) I may bring a guy I am dating - who is really quite a biker - and can help me carry stuff - but not sure as we are just dating and I do not know if we will be serious then or not - but he too has been invited since he knows the group as well. I would be prepared to take 100% care of myself - but if he is along I am sure it makes life easier.and he is quite sweet.
So ok - advice... thoughts...experiences....
In October I am going on a 3 day camping and biking trip. Admittedly we stay put with the tent - so just set it up and forget it (i think) and I can ride free- w/o carrying anything since all rides are SAG supported... The Bee does a Century stay tuned. So I will see if even the camping thing is for me... Cause ya know the Bee does like a nice hotel! But alas - when in Rome...and ya know I would like to have a bit of an adventure.
OK - have at it! (Private Messages are welcome...as are posts thoughts and grievances...)
