Sandy Buys "No Assembly" Tent, Nearly Gives Herself Black Eye!

So over the weekend, I signed up for a 75-mile overnight camping/cycling trip. Have I mentioned I DON'T camp, and hadn't ridden my bike in 2 months?? I bought a pop-up "no assembly" tent from Amazon....when I opened it, I almost lost an eye! It worked okay on the camping trip except NOBODY could put it back together. LOL!!

Aside from that, my legs are SORE AS HELL today....I'm honestly surprised I finished. Day one was 40 miles and TONS of uphill with 35-40mph HEAD WINDS!! Omg, I was hating life. HATING IT. If you could hear what I was thinking, there were LOTS of expletives, followed by, "I am NOT finishing this ride tomorrow." Thankfully, Sunday's weather was a LOT calmer and I decided to finish. We still had hills, and they still sucked, but Saturday was way worse. Special thank you to the Team at Sports Basement Outdoors for organizing such a fun trip! (SF to Point Reyes and  back)

Doing an overnight cycling/camping trip this weekend. Have I mentioned I DON’T camp? Bought this tent off Amazon as it requires no assembly and supposedly “pops” open for lazy people like me. SCORE! #LazyCamping #IHateInstructions #WheresTheHotel

Glorious, glorious s’mores! I can’t tell you the last time I actually had one of these by the campfire. At least 15-20 years. I need to do this more often; it was so nice and relaxing. #smores #camping #campfire #pointreyes #california

You know when you’re on a bike and it’s really pretty and scenic, and all the sudden you get to a hill and you forget how pretty everything is because you hate life? Well yesterday we did that for 40 MILES. With 40mph HEAD WINDS!!!! I have never in my LIFE ridden in the kind of wind. Felt like Mother Nature was bitch slapping me in the face for 5 straight hours. Told myself, “I am NOT doing this again on Sunday.” (Birds couldn’t even fly- they were being knocked the other direction!) 🚴‍♀️ Thankfully, today wasn’t as bad, even though I was lazy and tired as HELL and wanted to sleep in and not ride. 75 miles later...it’s done. I’m tired, and sore, and surprised I even finished, we did almost 4K climbing. For a girl that hasn’t ridden in 2 months, that’s pretty fucking hard. 🚴‍♀️ Special thank you to the amazing staff at @sportsbasement Outdoor (Damon, Lauren, Peter, Jennifer, Glenn) for their kindness, delicious meals, and great instruction. Met some nice people on this ride too. Special thank you to Julie for being my riding buddy!! Also, my $33 “no assembly” pop-up tent from Amazon worked nicely until I had to fold it back up. NOBODY could do it. Not sure camping is for me.... #NotACamper #NotACyclist #IJustWantToEatAndSleep #HellaPrettyThough
