Safety

First thing about taking a bike trip is knowing how far you have gone, how fast you are going and most importantly how more peddaling you have to do! While there are many great bike computers out there, here's my recommendation

Planet Bike's Bike Computer

The Planet Bike Protege 9.0 Cycle Computer is my touring bike computer. It has almost detail in view on one screen so there's little button pushing. One button push will show your average speed and total bike mileage. At under $30.00, it's a bargain.
