Training Day

Kathy and I loaded up the bikes, hers with just weights and mine with gear. The Elephant NFE is touchy about weight distribution so I need to get gear placement in the panniers dialed in since I’ll be carrying more weight on this tour than I would for a bike packing trip.

A half hour into it, Kathy got a flat. Of course, it always the rear tire. I helped with the bike and coached her through inspecting the inside of the tire and swapping out the tube. 15-20 minutes later we were back on the road.

During a rest stop we used a snow bank as a bike rack. It beats laying them on the ground.
