The Pedalshift Project 027: Folding bicycle touring
Getting ready for my first attempt at folding bicycle touring, I’m seeing a major need to reduce… and I mean reeeeeaaaaally reduce the amount of gear I pack along. On this episode, we take a look at the choices I’m making to go from a tent to a much lighter shelter setup and how that will make touring on a folding bicycle that much easier. All that, some gear talk and followup!

I forgot to mention my flat tires at the end of the NY ride!
Mysterious James and his mysterious partner are heading on a South American adventure from September through December… we’ll be following along and hopefully getting them on the show later in the year to chat about it.
