What is the longest trip you have ever taken on a bike? I am going to be getting a new bike in the next couple weeks and I am going to ride from here which is Springfield, IL to Houston, TX about 1000 miles....... anybody have some advice or things they think I should bring that I might not have thought about?

Nope I am going to go all in one shot it will take about 13 -16 hours depending on road conditions leave early get there kinda late I will be there for a couple days then make the trip back.... I think I just might be crazy :eek: but I wanna go riding with my uncle in Houston and I dont really wanna drive my gas hog truck all the way down there..... thanks for the advice I found a kit that has everything for tire punctures and compressed air for filling back up so i dont have to have a bulky pump :thumbup
