I'm trying to plan a 1200k trip from Halifax to Toronto through New England. I've been doing a bit of research and a lot of riding over the past few months so I think I'm just about ready. I haven't done a multi-day trip yet so I'm going to do a couple before I leave. First off, what should I be aware about for riding the day after I've ridden a few hundred kms (and the day after that...)?
Next, what am I forgetting? I'm bringing my giant Jandd saddle bag a bento box style bag and I'm planning on packing:
Extra batteries for lights
Two extra tubes
Tire and tube patch kit
Lighter could come in handy
I'm taking two weeks off so in case I run into trouble or find I can't keep up the pace I'll have plenty of time to get home somehow. If I can get there in four days or less and have a few days to rest, should I try to make it back as well? Am I insane/fooling myself?
