Hey guys, just been trollin this site for a week now so i guess i'll introduce myself. I'm Ian, i just got into biking last summer with my first bike a GF wingra. Riding my hybrid has REALLY got me hooked. I was doing about 50 miles a week 30+ of those on the weekend and all i can say is DAMN it gets me good gas mileage
Biking has kinda saved me in a sense and moved my back rehab along as well as helped me with pain. I went through 2 major back surgeries last spring and i feel pretty good about myself now and i think riding my bike has a lot to do with how fast i've recovered.
Anyways i'm thinking about doing ragbrai this year and using my hybrid to do it. Any suggestions tire wise for a 450 mile trip? currently it has 32cc tires and i think thats too big.
Otherwise i have clips on my pedals now and i'll probably go clipless right away this year as well as getting some better grips i think is not too bad of an idea. SOOO any other ideas for such a long haul will help this unexperienced biker out and i'd appreciate it.
