New to touring, but have ridden road bikes for a few years. On a Spring, Summer and early fall touring trip that would involve 30-50 miles a day with camping. What type of clothing is being used ?? What type of footwear and pedals ? The eggbeater by Crank Brothers looks interesting with a recessed cleat on the shoe. Are people switching out footwear when walking around town ? or ?? Guess I am asking if there are more casual riding clothing that could double duty for walking around town without getting strange looks.
I have been to a few Bicycle stores but might have been speaken a long lost language for the strange looks I got. Didn't realize that touring on a bike was such a crazy thing. They are most geared for road bikes with a little bit of mountain bikes thrown in.
Would appreciate any help, Thanks
