Today’s ride reminded me of two very important things.
1) Just because the high is supposed to be in the low 70s at 4:00pm doesn’t mean that it’s going to be warm at 10:30 am. I was woefully underdressed.
2) Just because you’re not hungry doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t eat something before going out on a bike ride. I started off feeling pretty good, but by the time I hit Parley’s crossing (about 11 miles in), I was starting to bonk.
Even after 25+ years of riding bicycles, every once in awhile I still make rookie mistakes.
