Hattie Jane, Foscoe Oakley, and Tabby have been hard at work healing Dave.
wow, I got confused. The finish flag says 24 July....
Heck of a long ride @Struang . How was your pacing and energy?
Quite an effort! Congrats.
I have one photo during the setup. Apparently, I got busy after that. If Roosters show up, I promise I will be less frazzled next year.
And I'm really thinking we will actually have a gravel race on the same day as the Ode. Limited to Roosters and maybe 25 more cyclists. It will work.
Good news already, Pidgeon Hill Brewing Company is already signed up for sponsorship. They loved it, and we loved them.
Canada VS. International Team - Sworry 2022!!!
Thanks @A_drizzle , I forgot about the issue of light + GPS with higher total stored energy requirement, that makes total sense with that in mind. @P_Cottrell , looks like dynamos are on our short list for gravel gadgetry.
External battery pack. Route downloaded on ridewithgps on phone as second backup. Dynamo hub for events >24 hours.
@A_drizzle , Hey Doc, aren't the new tech battery packs light enough to give 48+ hours without having the drag and weight of a dynamo? Or are you talking the ridiculous week long stuff? and just curious, do you use a trailer for all your food - LOL. Safe riding!
Second what @KHilgendorf said. My top tube bag has a fairly good pass through grommet to keep the battery dry and you can get a dry bag with a pass through hole for the head unit. Just cut a hole in the bottom for the attachment cause you aren't really concerned with a bit of moisture up from the bottom. Just want a really clear see-through layer over the top and water protection for the cord entry.
If you don't want a bag distracting you, you can also plug in the charge cord and silicone around it. Use it for the race that way and don't pull the cord out during the race. Once you're done, the silicone will pull away cleanly as long as you use 100% silicone sealant.
