BIKE-TOUR­ING TIPS

go! Namibia - - TOUR DIARY -

Travel short dis­tances. Don’t ride more than 250 – 300 km per day, or you won’t have time to ap­pre­ci­ate the scenery and the peo­ple along the way. Buy food on the road. Don’t pack too many sup­plies. If you’re not a picky eater, you’ll find some­thing to eat ev­ery­where you go. Be your own me­chanic. You need to take the nec­es­sary tools and parts (like ex­tra brake and clutch levers) to sort out ba­sic me­chan­i­cal prob­lems and flat tyres. Shar­ing is car­ing. We shared a three-man tent and cooking gear like an MSR stove, which uses dif­fer­ent fu­els.
