Ice Cream Run: Miles 128 -153

29 May

After a day of yard work I was able to sneak out for a short ride this evening.  Mostly I needed to get gas for a longer ride I’m going on tomorrow morning, but I also took a little detour.  More on that later, first for the fuel up. I made it 136 miles before needing to fill up the bike for the first time putting me at 33 mpg so far.  I’m hoping that number goes up as I get used to the bike and how to ride it better.  I plan on keeping a running tally of my fuel ups at the site  You can review the stats at     

Now for the fun part.  I wanted to pick up a treat for my wife and me on the way home and thought ice cream would fit the bill nicely after a long day of hot yard work.  Before I left the house I put a small cooler inside my tail bag with a cool pack.  When I got to Cold Stone Creamery and picked up my order I simply put it in the cooler, zipped up the tail bag and rode home.  As I said before, I think the tail bag will do the trick, and tonight it did very well indeed.
