Birthday Ride 2016
I really like riding south to Florida. I also like riding point to point and having my wife +Sylvia Wormley meet me with the car so I can drive home.

One thing that I like about my bike is that it is comfortable on long rides. This ride I did not take a lot of extra gear. I basically had my tire repair kit and water bottles. I did not take a jacket and rode almost half the distance in my arm warmers. Even thought it was raining and the temperature was in the low fifties I was pretty comfortable being wet and on my bike. Towards the end of the ride the temperature creeped into the high sixties so I took my arm warmers off and stowed them in my jersey pockets.
My Samsung Galaxy Note 5 did great on battery life. I had 50% at the end of the ride. I have the FollowMee application on my phone and on +Sylvia Wormley phone so we can see where we are on a map. Running GPS on my phone did not drain the battery. My Garmin when to 20% about 4 miles from the finish so I plugged it into my small external USB charger.
