I did some riding around the neighborhood yesterday. I felt good after my 132 mile ride on Tuesday. The weather was perfect, not hot, but cool with a slight breeze. The route has very low traffic and lots of trees sprinkled in with home estates and the Ecila Plantation.
I am debating about taking the bike rack off of my bike. On rides like this i want to have a light quite bike with nothing that makes noise. When I ride without my bike bag on the rack it makes noise when I am on bumpy roads. Iam glad that I have a bike that fists me so well and has eyelets for fenders and a rack. What I want is a good quick release rear rack. I have one that works fine on my mountain bike, but on my road bike the release lever rubs my inner thigh.
Oh well, such is the life of a cycling brain that gets lost listening to birds, wind and bike noise.
