My Bike


I am riding a Trek 520 touring bike across the country.  This bike has plenty of room for panniers (saddle bags), which allow me to stay filled up with supplies. 


The technical specifications are available here:


I chose this bike by doing research about the type of bike I should purchase for the trip.  It was agreed amongst all the forums I visited that touring was the way to go.  I ended up going to Competitve Edge Ski & Bike in Hadley, MA, where they gave me good prices on everything I purchased.  I tried the Trek 520 there and absolutely loved it.
