My buddy and I are planning to tour Europe next summer, where we (hopefully) plan to bike close to ~75-100 miles a day, for a month and a half. As money will be tight, I'm looking to save by avoiding to buy anything that will be costly and I could do without. Normally I would never think of buying cycling shorts, but a buddy of mine who just biked across the US told me that its an absolute must! So.....any advice?
Also, any other items you think we can go without (camping gear, cooking gear) let us know!
