The Card Has Arrived

20190424_224831Today’s Perfect Moment was an easy one because it felt so good to open that envelope.  My membership card for my cycling club finally came in the mail today.  That alone is reason to celebrate.  Couple that with a vast improvement on the weather–at least temperature wise because it is still raining more often than I want–and cycling season is truly upon us.

The items in the picture here are some of the things I have bought for this season.  It seems like every season there is something new to get or to organize before the serious riding can begin.  This year I have made only modest purchases…..so far.

I have my nutrition sorted out–except the recovery part.  I generally like these products and was able to order them directly from the company with a “welcome” discount.  I didn’t get their recovery formula because I wasn’t sure about it.  Maybe I will just have some chocolate milk.

I also bought UV protected sleeves so I don’t have to slather my arms with sunscreen every time I go out.  The guides in Vietnam and Cambodia had them on the trips and I decided to get them.  Other parts of my body will still need protecting of course, but one less hassle is fantastic.

If you want to read about cycling in Vietnam, take a look at these posts.  I wrote more, but these will give you an impression of it.

    I need to get UV sleeves too! Everything I’ve found so far have been either white or too big.
