65 miles!

Big MilesThe best part of riding my bike to work is watching the sunrise. No, scratch that. Shooting the sunrise. Ha ha!

I'm learning lots of things I will need to know in June. Such as my headlamp battery will not hold a charge through two mornings of high beam pre-dawn commute. That means I will need to take a charger on my weeklong ride in June — or pack an extra battery or two, which would not be cost efficient.

My pack is not big enough to tote my extra layers AND my camera in the afternoon when the temperature warms up. So let's hope for warmer weather come summer!

I always thought winter trainer hours counted only for keeping my derrière accustomed to being in the saddle and working on bike posture. Yesterday was the first time I’ve ever been able to ride 65 miles in March. So I guess that trainer is good for more than just fundamentals.Sunrise Reflections

  1. Woman of steel! I am impressed. The most I ever rode in one day was about 90 miles, and it was relatively flat. You guys are in a different league.
