1st Day Riding

Got a late start but still ended up getting a bit of mileage. I learned a few things – Primarily I can sweat a lot, and while the wind down here isn’t that bad, the wind combined with the terrain, or lack there of, is just mind numbing.

I rode 18 miles at the start and notice that I had only ascended 30 ft. I turned the ride into a longer ride than i had planned and ended up with 51 miles. That was nice. Running through 4 normal sized bottles and still ending up dehydrated was not.

For now on it’s the large bottles and Gatorade. I hate gatorade, but I didn’t bring any Heed with me. The Gatorade will have to do. Gatorade in a Hammer Nutrition bottle.

The gearing was appropriate, but still felt wrong. The shifting is awesome on the new cassette even with an old chain. I guess it is time to get a new cassette for everyday use.
