Second bottle cage

Well, on an early morning ride at the Outer Banks yesterday, I finally figured out why I added that second bottle cage to my near vintage Cannondale!

Yum! Definitely not hot enough to cook those in the can.

Where OBX? I am down for the long weekend, but don't have a second bottle cage
I don't think I passed you but OBX is a loooooong island (chain) and I can only handle maybe 15 miles less into that headwind.

We are at Milepost 21, leaving tomorrow, been here two weeks. I rode 26 miles today, seemed like a headwind both ways! I think riding at home in the mountains is easier...

Hope you have good weather and a nice time. Jeff

Hope you didn't hit the torrential rain! We lucked out and missed most of it.

I was wondering what mileposts I was riding by, so I looked it up and Hatteras Ferry is mile 71, but they stop putting up posts at Nags Head, so at least I'm not that unobservant. What a great place to visit, but now to get the sand out of everything, including the bike.

Ive rode Ocracoke Island in prior years and am always amazed at how difficult flat terrain riding can be , the winds are tough.

I began getting the 4wd ready for the 1,600 mi one way road trip to Ocracoke. We be there the first 2 weeks in July.
