We had a kids track meet in St. Charles, so we thought it was a great opportunity to bike back from St. Charles to Jefferson City, MO on the Katy Trail. They wives dropped us at a Holiday Inn Express and we spent the night, got up Sunday and hit the trail, then did an overnight camping at a local park. It was a cold overnight, but we had appropriate gear. We biked 47 miles day 1 and 67 miles day 2 for a total of 114 miles. Great test of our gear and more saddle time.

I give the Revelate Designs Mag-Tank a quick review and fit it on the Trek FX 3. I’ve only gotten in one 27 mile ride with the Mag-Tank, however, so far, I’m very pleased. Here is a look at the video review:
Got some Arkel Dry-Lites Touring Panniers as a belated birthday gift from my buddy Jerry. I take some time to show them, how I mount them on the racks, pack some goodies into them, and then take them out for a little spin with some weight to further get some saddle time on the Trek.
