I went on my first overnight bike trip last night. It was “supported” though because I met my folks at the campground, and they brought most of my gear. I still rode almost 30 miles which gave me an idea of my abilities and how many miles I should shoot for when I start my real journey. Next week I should have my touring bike all set up and I will go on another overnighter, but I will carry more of my own gear next time. That will be a better test.
