Last year I rode in a fifty mile event, which was marred by sweat mixed with sunblock running into my eyes. I had liberally coated my forehead with sunblock, then wore a helmet in 90 degree heat resulting in squinting through the miles with stinging, tearing eyes. Duh!
This year I'm planning a few longer rides and would like some tips in water storage, snacking, comfort and general pleasure inducing (or pain reducing) bicycle riding techniques.
