Semi-Noob to Road riding
I started road riding last August, and have been an average "intermediate" mountain biker for 5 years so qualify myself as a semi-noob to roading. Did my 1st Century with 2.5 months training last fall in about 6:30.
Quick question: Did a 4 hour road ride yesterday and loaded 90 oz of fluid in my hydration pack, along with usual tools, pump, nutrition, etc. Boy, did my back hurt! So should I move to putting 2 cages on the bike and hauling my hydration in bottles, vs the camelback?
Thanks in advance for your input.
