New to touring. few questions..
Im new to bike touring but not cycling. Ive always loved hiking, backpacking, and camping and when i found out about bike touring it was only natural that i would show great interest in it.
I have since went out and bought a Cannondale T2000, and some ortlieb front, back, and Arkel handlebar bags.
I had some time off in October and want to plan my first short tour to get a feel for it.
I live in nyc and wated to take off wite from my front door.
I was looking around and have decided on taking Route 9 straight to around the Canada area of NY.
I wanted to know if anybody else here has traveled these roads and if it would be a good first tour?
Would u consider it easy, intermediate, or hard as far as the hills and such goes. Any other pointers for my first tour would be really appreciative.
Thanx again, and this site is great.....Al..
