Also, I've never seen a port-o-potty with a flushing toilet and running water, but that was a nice surprise this morning. Things are classy up north.
We ended up biking almost 34 miles this morning, but I'm not able to upload the data to my computer. I broke the ANT+ stick for my laptop that connects to my Garmin. I snapped it in half, so there's no fixing it. The $32 (yikes) replacement I bought on Amazon should be here tomorrow.
I think my eyes are closed in this photo. Sad. Anyhow, this was a great training ride for next weekend's Venus de Miles ride, which will be half of my Put on my BGP Weekend. We cycled in the area of the course and I got to see how my bike performs on crushed limestone, which is not great, in case you were curious. It was especially scary on the downhills where it was sandy. I never bailed off the bike, but I got close to eating gravel as a result. Also, towards the end of the ride, my bike started shifting gears on its own. I think I need to get in there and clean up the gears before the ride next weekend, but I have no clue what I need to do to get ready for this ride, equipment wise.
What do you do to your bike to get ready for a long ride?
