With the recent acquiring of a ford transit connect van, I will now be hauling my bike in the back of it for my US and Canada trip next month. Itinerary and locations are mostly all the same, with the exception of me driving to either Rochester or buffalo after my stay in Pittsburgh, and leaving the van in secure long term parking for a few days while I ride my bike into Canada. I’ll loop back around Lake Ontario completely and pick the van up to carry on to my next destination in Ny.
The Pros of traveling in a van don’t outweigh the fact that I won’t be riding the entire length of the trip, but my body and my health probably won’t mind it that much after 2000+ miles and a month on the road. Don’t fret, I’ll still be covering many miles on my bike in the future.
