It is rare that I ride on Saturdays.  Those are the one day during the week that Lori and I both have off work, and I usually spend the day with her.  Today, she met with friends from 11 – 1, so what better use of my time than to ride?

My plan was 30 miles, and that is what I accomplished.  I did the hill in Round Bay and contemplated doing “THE WALL”.  I bailed on that when the opportunity to take that detour presented itself.  The first half of the ride was pleasant enough.  The second half was battling headwinds, 15-25 mph headwinds.  Pushing against that really slowed me down a few times, especially on my way back from Sandy Point.  It wasn’t so bad with the wind on my back!

It was good to get out and ride.  In just two weeks from today I’ll be riding OC11.  That’s the SPP ride from Stevensville to Ocean City one day, and return the next.  Two consecutive days with over 100 miles each day.  I’m looking forward to it.
