The rain and snow didn’t show. There were clouds but no wetness. The temps were almost as warm as yesterday, so I enjoyed a 90 minute recovery spin. The KTR is less than 6 weeks away. For whatever reason, whenever I get within 6 weeks of a big event, I start to feel that “it’s go time” feeling. The next 4 weeks will be important prep time for the 142 mile epic. I am still tinkering with different ideas as far as water, gear, lighting, pacing and goals. I wonder if I can carry enough water to get to the Westwater ranger station? With my Wingnut I can carry 100oz plus 4 bottles. Add 2 more bottles to the bike and that adds up to a lot of fluids. Hmm… things to think about. Speaking of Wingnut, stay tuned this week for my review of the Hyper 2.5 hydration pack. The 2.5 carrys a lot of water, in a light, compact design. I’ll divulge all my feelings and impressions later on.
That’s it for now. Be sure and check out the recently linked blog of Utah fast man Bart Gillespie.
