Commuting to work on the bike has all sorts of bonuses: staying in shape, saving wear & tear on the vehicle, saving on gas, and prepping for LIVESTRONG. Today was only the second day I commuted to work, but I need to figure out the best way to fill the tank before and after I ride in and home. After today’s ride home (that’s the elevation graph at top), I could have gone right to sleep. I had a GFF (General family function, not the same as FFF) to attend, and I had the General stop so I could get a Gatorade and snack. Bonking on the car ride is better than bonking on the bike, but I’ve signed up for the 70 mile ride for LIVESTRONG. I better figure out how to fuel while on the bike or it is going to be a very long 70 miles. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
On another note, I saw one of these on my commute in to work. Yet another bonus for commuting by bike.
Ride stats (combined):
Distance: 26.7 miles
Temperature: Hot going in, a lot hotter going home
Elevation: A lot of up and some down going in, reversed for ride home*
Ride category: Commuting to work
