1500 Km Trip across Japan Any advise?
Im planning a trip for September to ride from Tokyo-Fukuoka Japan. About a 1500Km trip. Im taking my Giant ATX Road bike with pannier bags and a BOB Yak. Im so excited about the trip. I will be camping the whole way. I am planning to do 100-125 Km per day. Maybe even do the ride back, but planning on jumping the train back. I only have 30 days, can 3000Km be done in 30 days? Any recommendations, thought or comments. What would you take for a repair kit and neccesities? Just looking for a little feedback.
Currently im riding about 300Km on my 4 days off, then 4 days of work, maybe 50km total for those 4 days. Its pretty easy right now, no pain to speak of. How can i increase my distance? What kind of training should i do until September?
Thanks for the feedback, anything is taken kindly. Bye guys...
