I've been going back and forth all winter about weather I wan't to do a long tour or a long hike this summer. I enjoy touring and bikes in gereral, but I also like walking a lot. I've never done anything more than a day hike with a pack either.
I keep on debating these two, knowing the most logical thing would be to do the hike, but with the cost of good gear and stuff I thought I should ask on here. I can imagine that
carrying 50 pound on my back versus on the the bike could breed some contempt in me for my choice.
So, if you ever hiked a lot and are a bike convert, or do both, I would like to hear your opinion on the general ups and downs of both.
