Yep I bought a mountain bike on Wednesday and today I'm going to try to bike 270km. I'll probably fail at 30-40km, but who knows. My riding gear is as follows. padded short inserts $38, shorts, under armor full sleeve shirt , cabella insulating shirt $100, and a light water resistant shell (glorified garbage bag, $34 dollars at marks).
I'll be bringing 2 meals high in carbs. 2 caffeine drinks, one consumed at start. Beta-analine. Gatorade and lots prob 3 L of water.
Instead of continuing and possibly looking like a total ***** (if I do fail at 30km) I will be riding solo. I'll post pictures to prove progress, after I make it back. I've never ridden in 2'c with sleet/water should be a challenge.
