Intercity Preparation

At long last, I'm preparing for my one-day Intercity ride to Boston this Saturday. We're staying with Dave's friend, David Cohodes, at 74th St and Broadway in Manhattan. This trickiness on our part allows us to save a few miles at the start of the trip.

My bicycle is here, as is the gear that I'll need to do the ride. As of now, it looks like we'll have ideal riding conditions:

Friday Night (NYC): Partly cloudy, with a low around 71.
Saturday (Middletown): Mostly sunny, with a high near 88.
Saturday Night (Boston): Partly cloudy, with a low around 67.

The question is, can I do this? I've been "tapering" this week, which means I've been putting on weight and eating too much. I hope that I'm replenishing glycogen stores and not just getting fat.
