It looks like I've been roped into organising a road bike tour of the Dales and Lakes in September.
I haven't toured since a post-GCSEs loop of the Lakes which consisted of rigid mtbs, YHAs, massive rucksacks and trying every pub en-route trying to get served booze by means of increasingly implausible stories of how old we were.
Things must have changed a bit since then...
I'm currently scouring eBay for 1-2man tents, racks and panniers. What do I need to know? What tips, tricks and cheap options are out there?
