Touring Tips:

- Plan and prepare.

- Service your bike before you go.

- Take a mobile phone.

- There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad equipment.

- Don't carry too much - in fact buy smaller panniers to restrict weight and volume.

- Plan a stop between 5 and 10 miles from your destination - there is nothing worse than arriving knackered and with low energy - it spoils the sense of achievement!

- Eat often during the day, but try not to always stop at cafes as it takes a lot of time and detracts from progress - then eat loads in the evening! :)

- If in a group stick together - achieving your aim as a group is very rewarding.
