So Why?
Because it is not easy.
And  secondly to check if the earth is really not flat.


My bike is an old Marin trekking bike,  I bought it as a second hand for about 250euro in 2009. The bike is about 14kg heavy and with all the equipment (tent, sleep back, spare inner tires) was about 31kg. I know exactly because with cartoon box I was just a little under the 32kg airport limit.

I used the best available tires from Schwalbe, a Marathon Plus, it works great.. however until you get on IS40. I had 3 -5 flats daily due to the truck tire debris lying on the shoulder.  More about flats and the IS40  here >>IS40.
