Ride report from the Santa Barbara 300K Brevet on the Surly Long Haul Trucker.
I completed my first 300K Brevet. Just a teaser for what's to come.

I spend a lot of time nowadays reading other blogs, mostly about bikes. I thought I'd share a couple of them.
When I was servicing the LHT last weekend, I made some adjustments to the front derailleur. There was some rubbing when I was on the big chainring and the smallest rear cog. No problem, I’ll just adjust it slightly. Sounds easy enough.
So I push off from home and straight into a headwind. Hmmm. Maybe I should’ve drove in? This isn’t very fun. The downhills were like flats, the flats like hills, and the hills, just miserable. After only a mile of this miserable headwind I crest a hill and shift into the big ring for the descent, and hopefully some relief.
Whoops. I guess it was a little too much. I really should’ve drove in today. When does that bike school start up again?
