During the last two rides I have taken; I have started getting headaches during the ride. Am I overexerting myself?

You might try drinking more water in the hour or two before your ride.
Yeah, you need to drink more....theweasonator

"hydro loading" before a ride can make a big difference in your performance and stamina.

If you have a digital watch, you can set the countdown timer to beep every 5,8, or 10 minutes to remind you to drink regularly... Someone else made the recommendation here before and 8 minutes works pretty well for me...
