I've read a lot, I've trained. I think I've got food figured out. I've got a centuries and a metric double planned before hand. This is on my bucket list, and Im only getting older. This year is it!
But I have tiny detail questions:
Lights. Carry a big 'ol light and deal with battery weight? Go small and pray?
How much junk do you carry? More than you can get in jersey pockets and a seat bag? Lots o' warm clothes, or just a bit. Do you carry 'em back?
Drop off. I understand you can leave stuff at the stops and pick it up at the end. True? Does it work well?
Start. The web site has start times, but a friend said you can actually leave early. True? I was thinking of shooting for 4:30 if that's legal. Is it?
Like I said, I'm comfortable with the big questions. But any small helpful details you could offer would be great.
