On the Trail
I am two days and 130 plus miles into the Bike Around America tour. I am posting daily updates in the Daily Trail section, so please sign up for the RSS feed to follow along with my short daily ramblings. When time permits I will do more major posts here on the front page.
Today, Day 3 will be a short day to give my body time to recover from the two very hard days up through Central Florida. The Salsa Fargo is doing great, although I have a wee bit too much gear with me. Funny how we start our loading small and then at the last minute more stuff magically appears. I have spent a good deal of time the last two days deciding on what gets sent back to family so that I can get the loading and weight down. The BOB trailer does great on the flats and down hill you really cruise (no wobble or push), but up hill is hard, especially with the single speed. Ironically as I look at the speedometer, even at my slowest pace I am still going more than twice as fast as I did on my best days in a Kayak. It just goes to show it is all relative :-)
