I was planning on riding all next week. I didn't know there was a special
day for it.

Panniers unless it's a quick jaunt. I hate having things on my back.
I do have one of these:
I used to use it to deliver Freiker prizes, and for carrying big stuff that
wouldn't fit in my panniers.

You fell asleep on a bike?

When it is subzero, the battery thinks it's only half-charged even on a
full-charge. I ran it down, and it went to red within 2.5 hours last week.
I haven't had it that long, but it stayed green for 40 minutes when riding
