A Big Effin Day

25 Mar

It’s been too long. I don’t remember the last really big effin day I had on a bike. Saturday will be that day. What makes a big effin day? For me it means the following things will be different from, say, a small effin day.

  • Suspension, It’s been a few years but I think I remember how to use it
  • GPS, don’t want to get lost
  • 260 oz. of CR, never carried that much before
  • 4800 calories, never ate that much before
  • Space blanket, just in case
  • Almost forgot, 22t cog

Check back Monday or Tuesday for details. I hope I’m able to post details. I’m so excite, high five!

    Brad, the route, the terrain, everything about your upcoming adventure is going to be huge. I needed lights at the end of the day a couple years back. Might want to have those – just in case. Although, you are faster than I am. So there is that.

    Have a blast. Good luck.

    Ride like the wind. And rub some of that CR on your arms and legs. The body will absorb it through the skin.

    Dang – I only lugged 200oz and that was plenty! Nice riding – I’m still riding a nice little desert high!

    so… how did your effin ride go?

    I started with 185 oz (including a 20-oz Coke) but finished with at least 65 oz remaining. At least I managed to eat most of the 4000 calories I brought…
