Andy's Tips for the Road

  • Enjoy yourself.
  • Listen to your body. When you are tired you are prone to making mistakes.
  • This is not a competitive event. Stop and talk with the locals along the way.
  • Take this one day at a time. Worry about the big climb when you are at the bottom of it.
  • Help your fellow team members.
  • Share your biking expertise and daily experiences.
  • Keep your anger at home.
  • Use common sense and obey the rules of the road at all times. You do not have a relationship with the drivers of the cars on the road.
  • Your leader will make the final decisions.
  • You must have a sense of humor when conditions are tough.
  • Be prepared for the tour and review the various lists you have received from ACA.
  • Leave room in your packs for group gear and group food.
  • There is a zero tolerance for disobeying the safety rules.
  • Don't worry about cooking for the group - There is never any shortage of helpers at dinner time.
