Finally settled into the first night before the biking begins tomorrow, and we were greeted on the eastern portion of the state with a very generous amount of rain, but thankfully the forecast calls for decent weather tomorrow. I read over the article on Times Online just a few moments ago, and they had pretty much all of the information correct (even my extremely lanky height and weight for dramatic purposes) except for the statement that I hope to average 10 miles an hour or more. I think I was referring to hill-riding, and not in general. I hope I average more than 10 miles an hour, for my sake. Otherwise I like the way the article was written, especially the quote that will probably end up on my tombstone:
“It’s pretty cool.”
I almost got away with remembering everything I needed, except for…socks… I have 2 pairs of large, thick wool socks and nothing else. What a cruel, hilarious fate. Thankfully I realized before we started or I’d be going across the state with nothing but those massive things.
Nevertheless, pretty excited to get out there tomorrow and get some miles in!
