Getting ready for my next adventure

I applied for a Schengen visa. But it took too long (21 days!!) and I had to cancel my flight.

So I took the opportunity to properly prepare my bicycle: Proper racks on the front and back with compatible panniers. 2 home made lightweight dry bags. Bicycle cover.

I also got a new cassette. When I tried to replace the chain, I discovered that my chain breaker also needed to be replaced. I have no idea why a pharmacy chain would sell them, but they do and a bargain at only $3.
