In early summer I plan on making a bicycle tour around the state of Wisconsin. Why Wisconsin? Well seeing that I live in WI and I have never made a long tour, it may be advantageous to start with an area I am semi familiar with. I never realized just how many miles it is around the perimeter of this state. It has to be close to 1500 miles. I have roughly mapped a route on a state map, have bicycle route maps of every county I will go through and am now finalizing a route on mapmyride.com. I realize that with this route planned out...It WILL change when I am riding it, and that is a good thing.
I have most everything I will need, but I do need to replace a couple items that have worn out over the years. My booties/toe warmers ripped apart at the end of last year, so they will need replacing. Also the rain gear I have is not adequate, so I would like to replace them also. I have been thinking of going with a poncho from these guys http://www.catoregon.org/?page_id=26 If anyone has suggestions on these or anything else...feel free. I am all ears.
As some may know, I am working through a leg injury at the present time. I had thought it was doing well, but I had a little set back. I am back at it now, although it's indoors and every other day, things are going well so far. This is were my riding is taking place for a while...my room in the basement. It's nothing fancy and although I can see outdoors, it's not outdoors and it will have to do for now.
I give thanks for having this forum to put this plan out here, because according to Napoleon Hill...Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.
