Things I learned today.....
1- On an empty stomach, while drinking only water, it takes me exactly 85 miles to bonk. (done purposely as an experiment)
2- The numbness I've been experiencing in my hands after approximately 40 miles is not due to some underlying medical condition, but instead due to the gloves I've been wearing. (by accident- forgot my gloves) Not a single tingle in 92 miles sans riding gloves.
3- There are people out there who when you announce "on your left" will throw their water bottle at you as you pass.
4- I like riding with a mirror. I added a Mirrycle STI mirror for my Cross Florida Ride last weekend and have become hooked. I won't ride without it.
