Last night I tried something different; I rode with my computer in my jersey pocket.
I loved the freedom it provided while riding on a well known loop. I knew approximately how long my ride would be, so I knew I'd be done before complete darkness, but I didn't obsess about how fast or slow I was going.
I just rode.
I pushed as hard as I felt like and enjoyed the ride.
But being the slave to numbers I am there is a fly in the ointment; my computer is less accurate in my pocket then on my stem.
Maybe I can construct some sort of computer burka?
