[quote="grizzly":1gc9oeli] If you let someone know where you’ll be going, and when you’re supposed to be back, you’ll never have to walk home!!
how do you figure?[/quote:1gc9oeli]
When I was racing back in college, we had several training loops that ranged from 20 to 40 miles. Depending on where we were going, the folks back home would have a general idea of where we were if we didn’t come home.
You don’t have to take 40 pounds of stuff every time you go for a ride…I’ve made it 20+ years riding and racing mountain and road bikes and have never needed anything more than what I currently carry. As a rule of thumb, cell phones don’t work in Wyoming, even in town!
