What has been taken for our WorldTour ?

I'll give you a little list of our package. Be kind, after the last two days we're a bit on the ground, having faced three opponents cycling worst elements (rain and wind, and eventually the mud!). Kloklo will tell you these first two steps of 70 and 130km in the travel book.

Until kloklo wakes up to tell you all that, I undertake to tell you a little about what we have to pull and push!

Saddlebags

We opted for shopping gradually according to our real needs. No need to buy 50 bags if we use only two! We had a choice between basic bags that fits all bikes (human and coated) or those provided specifically for recumbent bikes. There are lots of brands, but very few recumbent bike.

Sleeping bag

To choose a sleeping bag that is a real ordeal he's everywhere of all brands of all prices, something crazy. We will already make a first comparison of down or synthetic. The weight, volume and washing are important criteria for our travel style.

The tent Quickhiker III - 3 persons

Why did we choose this tent Quechua? Frankly, we bought it on our trip to Portugal, even at the very beginning. We started with a small lightweight tunnel tent (1kg), but very uncomfortable, especially for two! We could not go out & go in. There was no apses, the interior did not allow us to be able to house the bags in the rain and the first night was very revealing! A storm on the Mediterranean coast was pointing the tip of his nose and we had to pitch the tent in a vineyard. The hard soil with abundant pebbles made us realize that it was better to invest in a more freestanding tent and more spacious, even if we gain some weight ! So we are going 70 km away on the first Decathlon ... Therefore, the fate determined our choice. So I can't give you a comparison of different models of tents and assure you that this tent is the best, but I can tell you its strengths and solutions / improvements we have made to this tent in order to refine your choice.

About equipment...

May be it's time to give you a report on what we brought with us for our journey through Spain in July... We'll also say to you after 10 days what is vital and what weighs us down for not much ...

Sharly !

It's finally time... to present you our traveling companion, one who will lead us and we will support in the coming weeks pedaling ! Sharly our friend, our recumbent tandem Nazca !

Why a tandem? We travel two and we like being together, our pace will be the same and we can always discuss and encourage each other during the effort !

Then why a recumbent tandem ? Because we slide under the wind and because it's super comfortable !

Nazca Ligfietsen

Thank you to Henk & Monique from Nazca Ligfietsen for their encouragement and superb manufacturing of our traveling companion, the tandem Quetzal (named Sharly I recall you ^^). Nazca is a brand really on top for recumbent bikes, whether for a cycling-to-work or cycling-world-tour !
