Hi touring crowd, im usually a staple of Foo and SS/FG, but I have a few questions for you folks.
Now im an avid camper, I love it to peices. But living downtown, I am completely car free. Im unable to rent vehicles, and have noone to borrow a vehicle from.
My favorite neck of the woods is 400 km away (im being a little generous, probably about 350). Is this a feasible journey to make? What are your thoughts on how long I could go a day, how far? Perhaps training I should do to be able to make it? Whats a decent daily distance?
Ive been toying with this idea for a long time now and this summer im considering bringing it to fruition. The bike isnt the most important, im poking around on what to start building, something with some good rackspace and gearing for me. And I am an experienced deep-woods camper, so travelling light is not really an issue for me. Id be heading to my campsite via canoe, so i dont need a bike capable to trailwork or anything, i just need to get to the damn park, and biking is starting to look really good.
My biggest concern is what roads to take going up, two-lane high-speed roads, back roads? and where does one camp when along big old roadways?
I know its a pretty big trip, especially if i only have a week or two to do it. Any and all input would really help me out, so thank you all!
