Leaving in a week for my first big tour. Loaded with water (not food) puts my bike at 80 lbs. Problem is i'm about 137 soaking wet. I'd like to hear from someone who weighs about the same. Is my situation sustainable for 75 days averaging 400 miles a week? Will be doing a modified northern tier east to west.
I'm fit but obviously not much muscle. Cardio is good. 51 yr old male. Have been riding 2-3 times a week for last 30 days with bike about 70 lbs.
I can drop 5-7 lbs from the bike if i have to but i'd really rather not.
