    The Alta Loma area of Rancho Cucamonga. About 45 miles east of Los Angeles, California. Uphill, downhill and across hill riding; not too level!

    Re-sable ice pack?

    Any suggestions for a good re-usable ice pack, something granular that will stay that way even fresh out of the freezer? Please, no frozen veggies or similar--they go bad. . .when you forget them on the couch!

    I was thinking of freezing pea gravel or smooth aquarium gravel in a heavy, heavy ziplock, with a little water with some alcohol mixed in to keep the water frozen slushy.

    Any other suggestions, commercial or home-made?
    I . . can . . . doooo . . . it

    You can buy reusable packs in the drugstore for less than $5. They can be frozen or microwaved, depending on whether you want cold or heat. They're not granular in texture, but work well for me. They don't freeze solid.
