Done my first 30+ miles ride with the Princeton Free Wheelers group this morning. We were cruising all the way and I had no problem going the distance.
Now I’m much more confident about being able to complete the 5 Boro 40 miles route.
The three training routes that I will ride if (and that’s a big if, given the weather) I get to ride outdoor.
My cycling has now moved indoor and night time. CycleOps Fluid 2 indoor trainer (sourced from Craigslist), and Sufferfest video equals cardio and strength training for next spring.
One of the great thing about owning a piece of sport equipment is customization, to make it uniquely mine. A bike offers many ways of customization and here are mine. Some of them are more customizing my riding experience vs. customizing the bike itself. (I haven’t included pictures of the mundane stuff like foot pump, spare tube, CO2 canister, tire repair kit, and saddle bag)
Currently I’m waiting for two more items to arrive; Camelbak Podium Big Chill Bottle and Serfas Fissure Jersey.
Things that are on my shopping list in the future; road tires, better saddle, and winter clothing.
