A few more tips...

Assuming a brake pad isn't dragging on one of the rims and the chain isn't dragging against the front d/r, your best bets for making the ride quality as smooth as possible are to make sure the tires are properly inflated and the chain gets lubricated if it's running anything other than silently. As far as pumps go, I strongly recommend the Topeak Road Morph G: at least with my tires (max 75psi) it works so well that I don't miss my floor pump at all. As far as chain lube goes, I like Dumonde Tech Lite: it's commonly available, it works well, the 2oz bottle size is perfect for trips like this, and the bottle cap offers no chance of leaks (which is more than can be said for several of the alternatives).
