Sometimes you’ve got to just go with what you got, and then turn around and come right back so you can make some money. Carried way more than necessary for a single overnight but had to test the load capabilities of the un-eyeletted race bike, it can definitely be done better, and I can definitely go farther.

Yes, those are inner tubes and a toe strap holding my trashbag waterproofed clothing roll to the handlebars.. and no, I’m not particularly proud of that.
The local cyclocross season starts in a couple of days here in seattle.Thinking of loading up again to camp near the course, rip some of the single track I found near the venue in the morning and check out some afternoon races this weekend. Afraid I won’t have funding to enter this weekend, shouldn’t make riding the course any less fun Sunday though.
