Listen to the “Tell Me About Your Bike” crossover podcast with the Bicycle Touring Pro and you’ll hear why Darren was forced to ride this terrible old bicycle on his second bike tour across the country… and how he managed to perform this incredible feat with only a few hundred dollars to his name.

    My bicycle is HILAND HYBRID ROAD BIKE HIH001 。I rode the C&O Bike Trail Harpers Valley WV, and managed a 22 mile trek, it is was a beautifully functioning bike and would encourage you to get one if so, inclined. I’ve looked at the high end units ranging from $900 and upwards to $8000, what a shocker!!! My Hiland, I think, is comparable, for a person like me starting out.

    Hey Darren, I’ve been watching your videos and I must admit you make camping look almost appealingly. I’ve done several bike tours on my Raleigh Tamland2. The GAP/C&O and the Erie Canal and I find it to be a fantastic touring machine. Of my riding buddies and I overnight in B&B’s and hotels (no camping we are all in our 60”s). One day I would like to try a solo tour with possibly one or two nights camping. Keep the videos coming really enjoying them.
