Hello all. I have been interested in touring New England, but have not a clue where to start as far as equipment, a course of action, and the basic knowlege of maintaining a bicycle on the road for long periods of time. I live in Connecticut and have been biking for all my life, am very fit and active. I ride five days out of the week at a local resevoir, utilizing its terrain and smooth pavement, adding 4-6 miles every day to my routine. Hopefully I haven't dragged on here, but to get to the point I was hoping someone could give me some helpful and critical advice on what type of bicycle i would need to pack enough gear to be on the road for weeks at a time, and what kinds of routes should i take in New England to be clear of interstates and within safe camping spots. Thanks for the read.
