Thanks for the info on the Garmin. I was thinking about one and maybe grabbing the rear light/radar thing (Varia) to warn of cars coming up from behind. I have a mirror that works well enough, but if I'm not looking at it a car can still sneak up on me. The Varia works with the Edge 520. I'm going to check out that mount for the iPhone as well. The one I bought is ok, but I'm not thrilled with the mounting.
San Antonio, FL.

Just north of Tampa. Bout a 25 min drive to get to the hills from my house.

I know guys that can't ride without the Varia radar. Then some who used it once and never again.

I really like the quad lock mount for the phone. Very stable. Even have one on my Mtn bike. No issues.

Ah. Should have looked more closely.

I have a pretty pricey rear light now, so I'll think about the Varia down the road (no pun intended). I got hit by a car on my motorcycle once, and it's not an experience I care to repeat. But with a rear rack and bag on the bike, I'm not sure the Varia will be clear and I guess there is no way to mount it except on the seat stem.

My rides usually look more like what I did yesterday... I have found that biking always goes better with beer.

Pub Pedal? (As opposed to crawl.)

Pretty much. I think a lot of the riding around me is highly correlated with alcohol. I mean, RAGBRAI is pretty much an adult spring break.
