Traveling light is simply a LOT more fun! Most trikers learn this lesson the HARD WAY, from the school of hard knocks out on the open road of adventure. I learned my lessons the hard way, even though my tried and true triking buddy Matt advised me sensibly years ago. I thought I knew better, and really did think I needed all that extra cargo so I could survive an overland journey. I was not accurate, and now, five years down the road, I wish to spread the word to those entering this exciting realm of cross country triking. Weight is most definitely NOT your friend! This you MUST learn!
Trike Asylum reader Art Kneisel has shared with me a valuable link to an ultra light backpacking website, devoted to traveling light and fast, the only option for really fun treks! Backpacking? On a tricycle website? You bet! We have much to learn from backpackers, who are the masters of ultra lightweight travel. Much of my current paradigm shift away from unnecessary weight has evolved from this cross-sport study. For some ideas, click HERE and see what is available.
