So, the DK200 is 5 days away. I have a great many thoughts on the topic and a few important questions.
I am fairly certain, barring a big mechanical, I'm going to finish. Here's my stragegy:
In strong winds: Keep pedaling.
Deep mud: Keep pedaling.
Rough road: Keep pedaling.
Flat tires: Fix 'em, keep pedaling.
Dark: Keep pedaling. Turn on the lights.
Tornado/storm: Pedal until something dry shows up. When it blows over, keep pedaling.
It is pretty simple, but I can't find a problem with any of it.
The big question: DO I SHAVE MY LEGS?????
Lance says he does it so that when he wrecks he won't have to pick the hair out of the road rash. I've done that, and it did hurt. Not sure it is worth the itch when stuff grows back, though.
The family is coming along to crew - which is awesome.
I'll have a couple of short rides over the next few days to keep the legs fresh. More as events warrant!
