A few pictures from my attempt at bikepacking the first ever Apache Enduro 200.
A few things happened. First, I had some saddle sore issues. I waited from Troy near Greer to get some chamois butter. That seemed to have fixed the problem, but not before I came up against the wall. Not sure how to explain it but after riding a little under 100 miles, I was ready to just be done. Lame, I know. But if you are not into the race and time is not on your side, better to jump out.
Lessons learned: bring more equipment and have a back-up plan for touring should your race-pace begin to grind to a hault.
