Interesting self-supported ultralight approach to long distance cycling
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

That battery bank looks interesting, answers one of my questions about this sort of riding.

I know I'm shallow, but I can't get past the hair. Detracts from the epic beard.

Some random long distance rider recommended a zendure battery
they are one of the few that will charge while being charged, pass-through charging. I bought one, but haven't used it yet
