Each day I seem to have something I intended to write about. And then the day is over before I ever get a chance to do so. Ah well.
The weather is way to nice for this time of year. Winter is going to make at least one more appearance. It always does. Winter always has to get in the last word. But for now, I am enjoying the war temps, dry dirt and blue skies.
The Rim Ride is Saturday. It is going to be hard. Really hard. I am going to give it my best, and do everything I can to finish that beast. This week will be about getting gear, mind and body ready to rumble.
I have been putting a bit of thought into lightweight sleeping bags, bivy’s and pads. Budget is always an issue, and lightweight stuff isn’t always budget friendly. But that doesn’t stop me from pouring over websites, blogs and frequenting the local camping stores. I love gear browsing, and seeing all the cool stuff out there.
Why am I looking into this gear? Well it is NOT to do the GLR. I don’t think that race is for me. At least not yet. Perhaps down the road…maybe. However, I do like the idea of doing some multi-day bike trips. The KT, White Rim, CT and others might be a fun way to camp, and bike all at once.
Do any of you multi-day vets have any suggestions?
And finally, I have a whole bunch of new blogs I need to link up. I plan on doing those in the next day or two. I love how many people are writing about their riding.
OK, that’s all for now.
