Road Maps

It might seem old fashioned but I prefer the old paper maps to guide me,rather than
a Garmin Edge 705!
paper road maps doesn't need to be plugged in a electric outlet to become operational.
You can't say the same about a Garmin!
In this Journey from London to Portugal I used:

Michelin, Great Britain&Ireland (713) scale 1:1000 000 www.viamichelin.com
Michelin, Asturias Costa Verde(142) scale 1:150000
Mapa de carreteras de Galicia Escala 1:300000 Evereste Editorial www.evereste.com

Malgorzata helping me to Pitch my tent ( Near Portsmouth )
What a nice Girl! ( She's Polish )
Traveling at night by Bike without the lights on
is more than halfway to a bad experience!
Some Bike lights that really
light up the night.
and a very good light for a as cheap as U.S.D 78.70
magicshine 900 (900 Lumen)

Riding a Bicycle Safely

It's not my intention to reinvent the wheel!
There are many Terabytes of useful information available for those
who decided to use a Bicycle in their everyday lives.
The issue of security should not be forgotten.
Some useful links to prevent you from being hit by a car while riding your Bicycle:
