My friend and I are planning a charity tour next year, which follows the advance of my friend's father during the the war from Normandy to Minden, Germany. I have a vague notion to do it on bikes of the period or ones that have the same design. I've got an old Raleigh 3 speed which is pretty well athentic (though from the 50s or 60s, I think - the design seems pretty acurate, though for the 40s).
Our tour is about 750 miles, to be completed in couple of weeks (roughly 50/60 miles a day). Anyone tried this kind of tour on an old 3 speed? I'd be interested in hearing your experiences.
