With just three days until the CORSette, we had a busy weekend checking things off the race preparation list. It's really quite amazing how much I've deemed necessary for just a two-day scooter adventure! By this afternoon, the challenge was to see what I'd actually be carrying on the bike and how I would make it fit. Honestly, I probably carry more stuff on my daily commute, but then on the daily commute I've also got a rear rack and only a 12 mile ride.
With temperatures in the 90s plus humidity today, the other challenge was thinking through what I'd be wearing as the weather looks to be pretty similar later this week. Alas, I've come to terms with the fact that I won't be wearing my GoGo Gear Trench (the old armour and mesh is robot-like but cooler) and the new gloves I picked up Saturday were just too warm on this afternoon's shake down ride.
All good exercises though and I'm feeling pretty good about my stuff and gear. Now I'm down to the last item--but undoubtedly most important--one on the list: learning the route!
