I want to make sure that I’m ready for the bike tour I’m going to take. It makes sense that I would want to get some tips on how to last! It seems like it would be a difficult task, after all.

    I grew up bicycles in Holland, but as a social rider I am really scared to ride in Australia. Roads are bad with ragged edges. Cars do often take no notice. On bike paths bikes race passed without warnings.
