Maybe it's post-hurricane mental weirdness, maybe I'm just strange....
But, I'm considering trying a 300k brevet on a new-to-me bike on the 22nd or so - and I don't even have the bike yet. It's being shipped Tuseday/Wednesday so I might have it this weekend.
Not only is the bike new/not "fitted" to me yet, it's a SWB(short wheel based recumbent) and I've not even ridden my LWB (long wheel based recumbent) Easy Racers Gold Rush Replica for weeks (lacking motivation).
What with post-hurricane recovery work on my house, yard, etc., I probably will only be able to get in 1 - 4 metrics and/or a 200k between now and the 300k brevet date.
So, the question is, how dumb is this idea? Seriously.
Totally out of my mind foolish?
Just plain arrogant to think I won't pay a heavy physical price?
Stupid (as opposed to foolish)?
Feel free to comment...ridicule..whatever.
(I'v survived Hurricanes Katrina, Gustav, Isaac, Betsy and Camille at close range... comments won't ruffle my feathers.)
