Toronto to New Orleans..

Hello again. thanks to all you legends that were helping on this thread

it got a bit long & off topic (very glad I'm not in the Arizona desert now) so I've made another to share updates and desperately ask for route advice when I find myself on single path roads in Virginia
​​​
here is the homepage for the trip with a public IG if you want to see the suffering in real time
The route is Toronto, where I am now, to New Orleans - I am largely solo
​​​​​
And if anyone is extremely charitable or generous there is a giving page here - I am riding in aid of 4 incredible UK based children's charities. All the detail is there, please have a read the causes are fantastic and the money goes straight to work as they are locally based

Just finished the rebuild !
obv all the packing/rack still to do tonight and set off first thing tomo

Hello hello!
I am now, 3 days in - Toronto, Canada, to Dunkirk, NY
And only 1 puncture (see pic - fortunately quite a scenic puncture spot, every cloud)
I have a video update on the charity page I posted above if anyone is interested!
Also... 2nd pic... anyone able to tell me if this gash is bad enough to try a tyre fix or get a new one? Seems OK but quite a bit of the new tube showing

ps anyone know how to resize these photos!

Starting to warm up.. we got 35c today
Erie today Pittsburgh by Saturday hopefully
I can highly highly recomend the Apidura 3L bladder that fits in their frame bag - has been a literal lifeline
