I have been lurking on this site for a couple years now, garnering information about cycling and anticipating the day when retirement arrives; it is here, now what. Thanks to the commentators here I have assembled and equipped a pretty cool touring set up. The trek fx 7.1 is the workhorse of the arrangement. It carries two Iberia bags in the rear and Bontrager bar bags. The electricity is generated by solar panels which charge three back up batteries for charging phone ect. I must be getting serious about riding for I am putting in miles here in west central Ohio despite it being winter. Dayton Ohio I must add is a cycling mecca with miles of dedicated paths which connect to paths which lead all across the nation so I anticipate many miles ahead.
