|This bike on that truck.|
I'll be taking along the Fargo Gen I as a test sled for a possible rig for Odin's Revenge. My shoulder that I injured in a fall on ice last Winter is giving me fits sometimes on my "regular" drop bar bikes. I have found that by slightly turning my hands inward or outward, the pain is relieved. So, maybe a Luxy Bar with its extreme sweep may be the answer. Maybe it won't be, but there is only one way to find out, right?
I used this same bike on the Geezer Ride and I do not recall being in serious agony with the shoulder, so it may be that I have to go with a handle bar like this for Odin's. If it doesn't pan out, I am going to have to swap to one of my flat bar bikes, I guess.
Anyway, I was poking around on the KDOT site and found the county maps I need to plot out my own course. Since this year's DK is totally South of Emporia, I am going to venture Northward. I figure on at least a metric century so I can add it to my Cup-O-Dirt Challenge totals.
Okay, I am out of town till Sunday. If you see me in Emporia, hit me up for a RidingGravel.com sticker and say hello. Otherwise, I'm outta here. I have a couple of posts in the can for tomorrow and Saturday, so take care and I'll see y'all Monday, hopefully, with a full accounting of the trip.
