Bike Toughness (was Mental Toughness)
On the training schedule was the Mental Toughness ride, a 100-mile solo ride. I like a good un-interrupted ride, so I choose Highway 1 for the ride. My mental toughness, was not in question on the ride but my toughness of my bike was. Highway 1 can be a little rough around the edges, unfortunately it wasn't until mid-way through the ride I realized that I was not only missing a bottle but the entire cage from the rear of my bike. I spent the ride back looking across the road to see if I could retrive it, but alas no luck. On the upside I still had enough fluid to keep me going the rest of the ride.
