What are some of the odd, interesting, memorable questions you've been asked while on tour about your tour, bicycle, equipment, etc.?
One that sticks out in my mind happened on my tour in Australia. A group of us were barbequing supper at a campground, and various ones were asking my friend and me about the tour, and I think the subject of packing light had come up when one of the girls turned to me and asked, "What do you do when you run out of clothing?"
I was speechless for a moment.
I was equally speechless when I told the story to a group of coworkers a couple months ago, and one of them turned to me and in all seriousness asked, "What DO you do when you run out of clothing?"
I've also had women, particularly older women, take me aside and quietly ask me if cycletouring is hard on me as a woman. I'm not quite sure how to answer that question.
