Apparels and equipments

It is not very common to meet a cycling tourist that is appropriately dressed, with Lycra shorts, proper shoes, helmet and gloves. Indeed, cycling tourism and professional cycling are two different activities even if the “instrument” is the same, your bicycle. However, even when you are a cycling tourist proper clothing helps you enormously and limits injuries you may incur. Further, profesional clothing help you travelling lighter and leaner.
On a route of roughly 600 km where hosting infrastructures will give you the opportunity to wash clothes and equipment, two complete sets of clothes besides the one you will wear shall be sufficient.
