A friend and I took a couple weeks off of racing and and flew to Milan, Italy where we commenced a 650 mile ride to Barcelona, Spain through four stages of the Tour de France. I loaded up my panniers on last year's racing bike via an Old Man Mountain Sherpa front rack. This set up, in addition to a Garmin 800, could not have been more essential!
