No snow today on the mountain!
Saturday I rode my bike in the afternoon after my half marathon. I wasn't terribly energetic but I went on a short ride (11 miles) that I really like. Last year one of my friends I rode with was paranoid about not going on dirt roads. (flats) I don't feel I can avoid them because of where I live and so far have been going on them - not for the whole ride but for portions. Thoughts?
I am really getting the shifting figured out. It is easy to do and seems to be logical. I used the cages for the first time Saturday. I seemed to have a lot more Charlie horses - maybe left over from the half marathon and my calves were tight??? I don't know.
Most of these I took while riding - looking off
Sunday my husband went with me and we went on one of my favorite rides. We ended up doing not quite 25 miles. I was beat! But man what a ride I had. I felt like I was floating up the hills! It was a smooth smooth ride. On the way back we were headed into the wind and it still wasn't bad at all. I am going to be doing A LOT of riding this summer!
Waiting for my husband I play WWF with Char!
He is nowhere in sight.
Waiting again - no problem waiting at all on this
There is one of many fisherman I see on the ride.
I have a 44 mile ride planned when I go to Maine (more about that later) and am wondering if I can really do it without building up to it better. It isn't so much the endurance as the build up of body position. Well, endurance too. I imagine it will be much less hilly than today's ride.
Taking one of my favorite roads. Usually there are
a lot of sheep but not today. We will be on this road
in 3 weeks for my next half marathon.
Soon we will be going by the Morgan Horse Farm.
I'm pleasantly tired looking forward to my next ride!
