Where O Where Has the RevRider Been?

by on October 3, 2012

Does that last post really read September 11th?  Has it really been 3 weeks?

In that time I’ve ridden, worked very long hours getting ready to leave on vacation, and went to the Alabama Gulf Coast for a week.

I finally got back on the bike this morning.

I’ve also been prepping for the Epic October Ride.  That’s where the focus is this week.

Epic October Ride includes:

  • A Friday 7:00 pm start for an overnight 200k from Stevensville, MD to Salisbury, MD.
  • Riding the Seagull Century on Saturday.
  • A 130k return trip from Salisbury, MD to Stevensville, MD

That’s right, I anticipate about 315 miles by the time we are done Saturday evening.  (That doesn’t count the 25 miles for the breakfast ride Friday morning.)  By the end of the week I should have more miles in October than I accomplished in all of September.

I’ve made two purchases for this Epic October Ride:

First was the Axiom Atlas Handlebar Bag.  I’m guessing I’ll need some carry space for 300+ miles with many of those miles without food or water service.

Second was this nice accessory mount from VeloOrange.  It brings the Garmin and the headlight forward and up a little higher for better visibility and to give more room on the handlebars.

Now it is a matter of getting the bike cleaned up, new tires on, and install new brakes.  I’ll be ready to go.

This Ride: 21.7 miles
Month: 21.7 miles
2012: 4,381.3 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 18,235 miles
