Two more days and I'm heading off on my first road adventure on Sunday morning!

As some of you know I've been preparing for my first tour for several months. I did a couple of overnight rides in May to test my gear and my new bike and I'm finally leaving this Sunday morning for my 2-3 week trip from NYC to the Adirondacks! Woohoo! Exciting. Thanks for all the tips, knowledge and inspiration. I think I should dedicate this trip to BF members!

It would be a miracle if everything went smoothly on the first long ride. But one can hope Thank you!
