2016 Himalayan Tandem Bike Tour Gear List

We went on a beautiful tandem bike tour from Lijiang to Chengdu over 1200 km of open countryside.  To facilitate such a trip we had an abundance of gear for every possibility. As I grew up in the Boy Scouts, I follow the Boy Scout motto “Be prepared”. This led to our detailed gear lis...
