I've posted a similar thread under the Long Distance forum.
I'm new, but I'm planning to attempt a 1600 mile trip from Houston, Tx to Cimarron, NM and back.
I'm looking for advice on training, gear, equipment and such.
I plan to take the ride in mid July of this year. It should take me about 28-30 days, depending on what physical shape I'm in (I don't have the experience to know how long it should take). I have not worked out an exact itenerary. This will probably be a solo trip, unless I find someone to go with me.
I particularly need advice on training, what styles of bike are best for this, and just the general feaseablility of this idea. Understanding how much this is likely to cost would be great too.
Any and all help I can get on this is appreciated.
