I did a pushup today. Well actually…I fell down and I had to use my arms to get back up. So you know, close enough.

Going through the final preparation steps before my tour in 16 days.

I took the Domane into Swanny’s a few weeks back to make sure everything was ready mechanically. Today was an appointment with Greg over at Sänus Sports to make sure the bike was ready from a fit standpoint. Everything on the bike was dialed in, but my cleats were a disaster.

After replacing the cleats we toyed with the idea of adding a longer stem. A 90mm is on there now and felt a 100mm might work a little better, especially after dropping a few pounds after my last visit. After trying it, Greg felt it would be best to hold off until after I got back. It seems I’m right in between sizes and he’d rather not make such a major adjustment with a 5-week tour coming up.

I needed the car to go to my appointment while the kiddo needs it after school to go to her volunteering commitment. I dropped her off this morning, went to breakfast, followed by my fitting appointment, dropped of the car where she usually parks, and then rode home. And here we are, one step closer to an epic ride.

T-Minus 16 days until PCBR.
