Four fifty came early this morning. The alarm rang and automatically I got up for the Mosey Monday ride. I was ready in record time, so took a longer route to the meet up at the Rusty Bridge. I think there were 8 of us riding this morning, and we took a nice leisurely pace most of the ride as we caught up with stories about the massive weekend miles we accumulated.  On the way back from the end of the trail, once we were on B&A, the pace started to really pick up.  We aren’t sure who started it, but soon we had the group going 22 – 30 mph.  We all stayed together and just laughed at how those sprints just appear out of nowhere.  I had 22 miles in, stopped at home to see Lori off to work and consume a few calories, then went back out solo.

I decided on the loop to Sandy Point via College Parkway and back on the trail.  I really didn’t have a lot of strength left in the legs, so I mostly enjoyed the ride.  I encountered another SPP rider twice and rode with him for a short distance, and was passed by a Bike Doctor team going faster than I wanted.  Besides, I didn’t have the right kit on to match them.

It was a nice ride for a holiday/vacation day.  Now some grocery shopping and work on the hot tub to get it cleaned up and ready for these nice cool fall evenings.

Past 7 days distance total is a new personal record: 265.2 miles
