Meeting at Yia Yia's at 8 PM.
Finalized plans for all things Trans Iowa including: mode of travel, lodging, departure time/location, nutrition, drivers for the way home, last minute second guessing, and panic attacks. Now all we gotta do is ride.
While many of us are still deciding on our gear and overall bike set up, Aaron has his all figured out and is ready to roll. Must have been a Boy Scout. He's got a sweet setup. Plenty of food and everything else you could need.
A lot of gels, salted nut rolls, and electrolytes in that Epic Ride Research Mountain FeedBag.
The weather has been holding steady at about a 50% chance of rain/thunderstorms for the entire event. The forecast has made me consider bringing my single speed. If it's gonna be a muddy mess, a single speed would be a lot less likely to break down over 314 messy miles.
