That was one of the top ten events in our lives.

For a beginner-to-intermediate, the Bike Touring: The Sierra Club Guide to Travel on Two Wheels is a great start. I was puzzled by the ratings on Amazon which thought the book was too basic. It is comprehensive and clear. Great on the Kindle being able to skip around easily. Even though I have been at this for some time, I found interesting stuff that increased my knowledge.
