The other thing which matters a lot is your bike type. It should be comfortable and according to your size.

You can go for aluminium bikes which are certainly cheaper and makes a good ride for you. Travelling with four panniers is a better option than cycling with a rucksack. Since it might cause back pain.

With regard to the tyres of the bike it is a better option to buy Schrader valves than the presta valves since they have a better option of getting inflated at any garage which falls on the way. Don’t go without ample amount of money, it is good if you go with a Visa debit card which you can use in times of need.

Things you need to take

Don’t forget to take with you a sleeping gear as well as a camping pillow which you will need at the places where you stay in your long distance journey. Small backpacking tent is yet another viable option which will save you from all the journey worries.
