Tied Bike Hill Record 6-6-20 and New Gear

Just when I was certain I am weaker than last year inexplicably, I tied my cycling hill record by Silver Lake 1:40 on Saturday, near the beginning of an 85″ bike ride.  YES!  I also got a new yellow watch band AND best of all, a new way to attach my phone to the bike for long runs when I need extra battery life with navigation.

Introducing the new quadlock system with extra components to sandwich in my big battery.  My phone, even in airplane mode, with GPS lasts less than 90 min.  This may not be the most aerodynamic solution but it is great for me and I am very excited to have battery life while riding.

I also realized that mapmyride has no vocal navigation so think I need to download map to google map to get turns called out.  Strange that no cycling app has figured this out yet.
