    Everything is ready for my first race, tomorrow morning i will drive around a hundred milles for go to my first race. It`s just a half marathon, so it`s not going to be very hard. Sure i will enjoy with others handbikes, i will take some thumbtacks with me

    I hope to be ready for my first marathon in three weeks. I did a 26.5 miles ride this morning in 1 hour 40 minutes on my heavy 7-speed XTL (with only 92% internal gear efficiency). I started fading after 20 miles, so hopefully two more weeks of training will improve my endurance.

    One thing about those 7 speeds they will get you in shape, I really built up riding one of those in the Santa Rosa mountains in CA many years ago. When I came back home and got on my 27 speed I was really flying. It was like going from manual steering to power steering in a car, lol.

    In my first race the first thing i learned was that i can`t spend time drinking water with the bottle, specially because almost all the race was uphill.
    So you have two options, buy a camelbak or just make your own one with a bit of tube, i left a few pics for show it.

    talk to me ppl.
    Don't got a pic, but I use a Quickie Shadow handcycle that attaches to your existing wheelchair. I like this handcycle, because of the fact that i can attach and detach it from my wheelchair, and it will fit in my hall closet when I am not using it.

    If i have to replace it, i plan on getting one of those Dragonfly handcycles, because of the same features as the Quickie model I am using now.
