I've looked around the forum for a while and I've found some interesting articles but I still have some questions.
1] Being hosted -
Many people post about how they got a decent nights sleep in a warm bed after a rewarding shower, but how do people go about getting this?
2] Can you tour on a road bike? -
I have a GIANT (don't know the model name). It's brilliant to ride, but can it be used to tour with panniers?
3] Kit -
Beside the obvious such as clothing, money, food, etc which bits of kit have you/would you recommend taking with you on a bike tour?
