I actually rode my "older" bike the first couple rides to allow the salt to get a little more washed off the roads. Then I couldn't stand it and got out my road bike!!!
I rode 20ish miles on my first ride on one of my favorite routes. A friend went with me and I kept exclaiming over how wonderful it was. Heaven.
During the work week I rode after school on another favorite route but I was tired and not feeling it that day and did one loop instead of turning back and doubling it. Thursday I rode with a friend and we debated not going after listening to wind HOWL all afternoon. But we went in the direction of the wind first and managed okay.
The cross winds were the worst as I worried about being blown over. Then we turned around and came back with the wind. That was pure delight and we got 26 in when I wasn't sure we would get any.
I liked that route so much I went back on it today. I left from home and wanted to make it 30 miles. BUT my odometer wasn't working. I went to get it fixed on Friday and still not working. It works if I am going less than 15m.p.h. but as soon as I hit 15 it stops. How weird is that! So I guess I need to go back. In the end the route was 29+ so I did pretty well.
On the way home I stopped for just a bit and watched the kayak race in the river near my house. I am usually doing a half marathon and miss it. I didn't sign up this year and I must say I was quite delighted to not be doing it. Right decision.
I have still been running and swimming so life has gotten busier. Tomorrow I need to run 11. It's supposed to be raining but I hope it holds off for a bit!
Hope you are doing something that delights you as much as biking delights me.
