Would've been easier if I had have turned around at the 5km mark.....I was doing OK till then.

Oh, and more importantly, your speed sensor arm is asking to become intimate with your rear wheel. :crazy:

Boss says 1 bottle per hour.....I rode for just short of 2 hours.....and had not much water left at the end. Some folks may find it easy, I found it hell. Hell worth living through though! :)

Isn't that supposed to be a 500ml bottle an hour, not a litre?

the bottle's aren't 1l either. I took what I thought I'd need, and I needed it. I'd rather carry un-needed shit with me and not need it, than not carry it an need it. It's not like I'm in some race, or looking for bragging rights, shit 90 minutes up there.....if I'd done it with 1kg less maybe 85 minutes....who cares.

Bag is bigger than is needed.....it's not got much in it, but again, I'd rather have some more weight there, and not need it, then not have it and need it. :)

Exactly, I don't get why everyone's ripping on the extra weight?

If I might be so bold, my guess is because it's a Roadie thread
