Hope to pack in a few miles tonight

This evening is my weekly women's group ride, but it's raining right now. I hope it stops so I can ride! I wanna ride! It'd be great to get a few miles in before flying to Washington DC for the weekend.

Need to pack for our trip

The hubby and I are leaving for DC tomorrow to attend one of our couple friend's bachelor/-ette party on Saturday. It's going to be a combined men's and women's event. I don't know what we're going to do exactly, but it should be fun! Knowing our friends, beer will be involved. I also hope to visit the National Air and Space Museum while we're there.

You packed all there?

During the century this past weekend, I recounted everything that I had packed in my under-saddle bag to my riding buddy, Cat. I was kind of amazed and impressed at everything I fit in there. The list includes:

a spare tube
tire levers
a multi-tool
two CO2 cartridges and pump
a granola bar
a baggie of pretzels
a baggie of almonds
two fruit roll-up type things
a small travel bottle of sun screen

Not to shabby, huh? I also had a hand pump attached to the frame of my bike, and my jersey pockets contained my cell phone, a camera, my ID/money, a clif bar and I later added some twizlers and a rice crispy treat.

With all the food that was provided at the ride, I didn't end up needing most of what I packed, which is good to know for next time. And by next time, I'm referring to the Holland Hundred, which is the next century that I'm considering doing on July 18. Anyone else in?!?!
