This was a fun ride. I'm glad that I rode with such a great group of people too!
Kancamangus Pass was easier than I thought it would be, but, then again, my legs were still fresh. Bear Notch was trivial going in this direction. Crawford Notch was a bit tough. My climbing legs were pretty much gone by the time I got to Kinsman Notch, but I got myself to the top with no issues. We added a few miles onto the end to get over 100 miles.
I only wish I had done two things differently during this ride:
- My legs sometimes start to cramp after mile 75 or after climbing a lot, and I brought along Nuuns tablets to use during this ride. But...I accidentally left these in my bag in the van. I was a bit dejected when I discovered my mistake before climbing Crawford Notch.
- I wish I could have found something to eat at lunch that could have settled my stomach down a bit better. Maybe more salt next time?
