Partial Tuesday Pizza Ride

by on October 5, 2010

This Ride: 20 miles
Kona Distance: 3,884.3 miles
Month to date: 74.3 miles
2010 Total: 4,370.8 miles
Pace to 5,254.8 mile goal in 2010: (286.5 miles ahead of goal pace)

I no sooner got to work this morning when I had to schedule a 4:00 appointment, putting the 5:15 ride in jeopardy.  I looked at options, and decided to ride the reverse route that the 5:15 Pizza ride was taking, therefore intercepting the peloton and ride back with them.  It was a good plan.

I hit the trail about 30 minutes after the others had left, and caught them just at the 10 mile mark (for me).  The peloton was pretty loose, with frequent sprints and constant changing of positions.  We had some riders I’d never met, so the gathering around the table for pizza and beer was a nice time.  Clint even showed up before he had to go off to handbell practice.

The trip from the pizza place to home was quite chilly.  I was still damp from the sweating and it was 55 degrees out.  I warmed up by the time I got home, but those first couple of miles found me nearly shivering.

We’ll see about the morning.  The forecast is for 47 degrees at 5 am.  Possible rain later in the day.  High will not reach 60 degrees.
