I'm going on my longest ride I've ever been in my life . Im going from Canada British Columbia to as far into California as we can and I'm only 13. I'm going to be riding a 2005 Diamondback Topanga EX. its kind of a tradition we do it every 2 years and every time we go farther than the last. Does anyone have any good suggestions on equipment to buy??? I love touring its practically life. And Id like to hear some of your guys's rides.
