I somehow managed to average nearly 100 miles a day during my cross country trip. You know what that does for your fitness? Yeah, it makes for great base miles, but it destroys any speed you may have once had. Sure, I saw some great places, met some great people, and had an experience of a lifetime. I did not, however, improve my racing fitness.
In addition to lots and lots of interval efforts over the next month, I am also planning to write a number of reviews of the products I used during my recent trip. Some of them are relevant only for touring but many of them will be reviews of everyday cycling products. I'm not sure where to start but I have formed plenty of opinions after 4300 miles of use.
