Where Are Those Cables?

e Cycling USB Port

As I recharged various devices after the Genting Sempah night ride, I was struck by how “e” cycling has become.

It wasn’t that long ago that bike lights were powered by AA or AAA batteries, and cycling computers were powered by coin batteries.  These days lights and cycling computers are rechargeable.  As are an increasing number of other cycling gadgets.

It is not unlikely that today’s cyclist will have six or more devices to recharge after a long ride:

  1. Cycling computer
  2. Sport watch
  3. Front light
  4. Rear light
  5. Camera
  6. Electronic drivetrain
  7. Power meter
  8. Headphones
  9. Mobile phone

We are becoming increasingly e-dependent.  The most important items to pack for a weekend cycling trip might just be some USB cables and a multiport USB power adapter.

I left Malaysia in 2008 as a non-cyclist. I am back home now with two road bikes and all the paraphernalia that goes with being addicted to cycling.
