Riding with weights for the exercise of it...
...well, I might as well be! After installing a frame pump, I decided to weigh my paw paw bike (Trek Navigator)
with a full water bottle, pump, seat bag, etc., etc.
...plus my current 235 or so once on the road. Oh well - I just look at it as the cycling equivalent of running in ankle weights.
One of these days I'll move on to something lighter, but not until I've put a more effort into fully utilizing this bike (tuning the engine, as it were).
I could get two of those TCRs stepfam is looking at for this weight. Might be kinda difficult to ride them both at the same time, though...
