Rode about 5-6 miles on average at Massasoit the last two days. Yesterday, on a downhill ride on the Adams tail, I lost my cyclometer. No idea where it went – obviously I didn’t get it attached properly.
So today I bought a better one, the CatEye CC-HB100, which includes a heartbeat monitor. Much nicer and I love the heartbeat function. Will be adding that to my tracking moving forward.
Rode today for the first time with the new cyclometer – and carried the Cambelback M.U.L.E. with its 100oz water “tank”. Carried some food and the camera. Worked out really well and will use it for longer rides in the future.
Unfortunately, today, while cycling through East Taunton around Miro Lake headed back to Massasoit – just after coming off a trail where I launched the bike off of a 2′ ledge – I blew the rear tire. So I was introduced to the art of tire changing – after I walked 2 miles back to my car and bought the tubes. In the future, I will be cycling with a spare tube, the new Topeak Harpoon S2 pump and my Topeak Alien II multitool.
Tomorrow: the Myles Standish State Forest.
