Hi, I recently bought myself a Trek 7.5 with the intention of cycling long-distance. I just cycled to Niagara Falls (58mi round trip), was exhausted at the end, but want to go somewhere else now!! This was the first time I biked that far. I had never even gone close to that mileage.
I am looking into making my own panniers, and handlebar bag. I also want to learn as much as I can. If anyone has advice or suggestions, I am VERY willing to listen.
