Long rides usually mean riding across areas you might not consider prime riding spots. To some riders
U.S. 50 across Nevada is a beautiful ride. To a canyon carver it can be a long, hot boring, dull highway to
hell. For times like this, carrying a tape player with your favorite music can prove invaluable. Some of the
other tricks of the trade are to stock up your tank bag with a supply of tart candies that you can munch on
while riding. A sour lemon drop will shock your senses and keep you going another twenty miles!
