My First Double Century
Schwalbe Durano Plus HS 399 Racing Bicycle Tire on my next long distance ride.
On my last long ride to St. Mark's FL I ran out of power to my phone, headlight and Garmin. This trip I had plenty of power. I had my dynamo which I used to power and charge my Garmin during the day light hours after is showed 20% battery life at about mile 168. I was on my third phone battery at the end of the ride. I had two battery bricks that I could have used if I was on a longer ride. Using the Garmin Live Track with my phone does use more battery on my phone and Garmin, but it is worth it. The Live Track allows my wife +Sylvia Wormley see where I am.
The most nagging physical part of the ride was my left big toe. I had developed a large callous on it a few weeks ago. I have been riding with the minor pain on the bottom of my toe for several weeks. I thought it was getting better, but I would learn a valuable lesson on this ride. I had the fore thought to pack a package of Dr. Scholls pads in my bag for this ride. I put one under my toe at the start of the ride. I have always known that my feet swell up when hiking, running and cycling, but I had to re-learn that lesson on this ride

I will ride more endurance rides in the future. I will ride to St. Mary's again, but I will pick another route.
Here is a list of some of my stops during the ride.
