So, now that we’re back in Florida (after 12 months on the road in our RV) and now that Moose has recently gone off to his great doggy reward in the sky, we’re free to go on a bicycle adventure. This is something we’ve thought about for years but, having adopted 2 dogs in 2003 it’s not something we’ve had the opportunity to do…until now.
First things first, an assessment of our current bikes.
I have a Cannondale F700 that I purchased in LA in 2003 and it’s served me well. In fact, the front disc brake just went out this month, after 15 years of non-service!
We considered a tandem recumbent and picked up this Vision R85 Double Vision locally. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem like the bike for us and we’ve got this one up for sale if anyone is interested. Just leave us a comment or e-mail us directly or find us through our Facebook page.
For now we will continue experimenting with what might work for us on the road fulltime…so much to learn…the right bike, the right gear, the best route etc..
We’d love to hear from other people who have headed off on their bikes for any extended period – please comment on this blog post – looking forward to hearing from you.
