    12 year old nephew going on 3 week tour

    My 12 year old nephew is going on a 3-week bike tour this summer, from Boston into Maine. He's been training, using a trainer through the winter and now outdoors a couple of times. I did a 15 mile ride with him last weekend. I'm doing work on his bike to get it ready - will be replacing tires, freewheel, chain, brake pads, cables. He's going to have a blast. So much fun helping him get ready.
    Oil is good, grease is better.

    Plus one on that. It's something he will remember for the rest of his life and, hopefully, be the first of many.

    Very exciting! Is this with a group of other kids?

    Gone but not forgotten:

    Yes, it's an organized group of kids with adult leaders.
