Long distance stroll.
[ Saturday - June 20, 2015 ]
So much for heading east in June. As of right now, the
universe is not aligning for the Utah ride. Too much is
happening and everybody's schedule is whacked. So we settle on
a day ride instead.
Given that the Major has his Laam seat for nearly three months now,
and the fact that he's been only able to test for 25 miles at a
stretch, it was a quick and easy decision to delay Utah for a single
day ride. It's been a while since we've been at Isabella so
that a good an long destination. It would have been good to
finally get that oh so tasty fish fillet that we keep hearing about,
but the restaurant doesn't open until 4:00pm. What the
heck! Forget the fish, we just going to do the ride. So
the question for the day is... is it a day long seat? Or is it no
better than stock. From what I can tell from the commute and
the initial 90 miles, it's definitely better than stock, but I'm not
sure this is a day long seat.
Total: 377 miles
Time: ~5.5 hours
In the end we're not sure whether it's our clothing or the seats
aren't day long seats. For sure we're good to ride about 180
miles before saddle soreness settles in, but by that time we need to
fuel up anyway. For my part, I think the trapped heat from the
foam is causing fatigue. At this rate with more attention to
clothing selection, I'm sure we can achieve 500 miles a day.
