I'll be biking from Montreal to Stowe, Vermont in late July. I'll be biking with another cyclist who has biked across Canada before. A friend will be driving down with all of our camping gear and driving us both back at the end of our camping trip.
What do I need to prepare in terms of equipment? I have some of the gear I need but a comprehensive list would be really helpful.
What should I do to make sure my bike is ready for the trip?
What can I do to make sure that I am physically capable of making the trip? It'll probably take about 2 full days in total, we estimate.
