Reminder: your long-distance road trip is a journey, not a race. So if you’re out on the road and notice that you’re feeling drained or worn out, don’t forget about taking breaks—take them as often as you’d like. Some riders recommend resting at 90-minute intervals or so, but do what feels best for you. Pit stops are a part of every big adventure. Use this downtime to fill up on gas, use the restroom, have a snack, stretch it out, clean off your windshields and, above all else, start prepping for the next chapter in the journey ahead. Including rest periods into the journey is a sure-fire way to help you stay mentally fresh and ready for wherever the road takes you next.
