    First ever tour

    I'm going on my first tour in a couple weeks. It shouldn't be too hard. It will be shy of 200 miles done in three days; and I'll be staying with friends instead of camping. Still if anyone has any advice I'd love to hear what more experienced riders have to say.
    I have been riding for 2 seasons now, and have done 3 century rides this summer. I've had a lot of fun and am looking forward to new experiences.

    Sounds like you're more prepared than most for a short tour. Don't forget the cp, camera, and tool kit. Have yourself a lot of fun.
    The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me

    There isn't much to say. Staying with friends makes packing lists almost moot. 200 miles in 3 days is a lot to me, but the fact that you've ridden centuries makes it seem as if you're in good shape. Go for it and have fun!
