So I've decided I need to get in shape to be able to make the trip. There may or may not be time to try it again, but today after I visit a yard sale and get my car inspected (Whoa, does that sticker really say "9"??? Oops...) I'm going to come back home, get on my bike, and give the ride a try. I may go to Ace Wheelworks and ask them what I can do about my posture... maybe they can raise the handlebars for me or something.
This is a Saturday with a to-do list!
Edit: ...is that rain? Dammit.
