Weekend Roundup

Well, I rode more distance on Monday… the nothing until Friday.  I overslept three days through the week.  That’s bad.  I actually overslept Friday also, just not as late.  I rode in on Friday, but only from the 3.5 mile point.

I bought a headlight earlier in the week, and I bought a backpack for my laptop today.  I went for a quick nighttime ride around my neighborhood a few minutes ago (with the backpack on) to check out my new setup.  The headlight works better than I expected.  It’s a six-LED light, and it does a decent job.  It can also be set to flash for better visibility in the daytime.

The weather forecast is calling for a high tomorrow of 95.  I’ll be outside most of the day.  I need to mow the lawn, and I intend to take a ride (without the backpack).  I’ll be sure to drink a lot of water.

  1. Those “camel back” hydration packs are pretty neat… they bag that you put the water in can even hold ice.. so you have a cooler on your back.

    I ride with a bandana under my helmet.. and I soak the bandana in water to cool me off as I ride.. It gives my cooling system a head start and seems to keep some sweat out of my eyes.

    When I’m tired.. I pick out good shady spots to ride to and drink.. then ride to the next one… lol.
