Packing for the ride

packingIt’s almost that time!

I’m packing up for the ride, hoping I don’t forget anything major. Yes, I once drove to a day ride without my bike shoes. Unlike my neighbor the project manager, I’ve been lax about a packing list and still need to pick up some spare tubes for my tires. Any last-minute-suggestions? (One advantage of riding a route that connects cities: how far will I ever be from a store?)

Unlike the self-supported rides I have done, the East Coast Greenway is hauling all the gear. Will I end up overpacking?

Then I head to Philadelphia Saturday afternoon for a pre-ride gathering with some of the other 39 riders.  And at 10 a.m. on Sunday, we start riding and I’ll find out if I did enough training. May it not rain all week, at least while I’m on my bike. (Got the rain jacket, got these Dutch “rain legs” that don’t smother you like pants would.)

Meanwhile, the ride has already raised more than $42,500 for the East Coast Greenway. Thank you to all who have supported me!
