Friendly Fixie Friday

by on March 25, 2011

This Ride: 30.3 miles
Month: 481.2 miles
2011: 1,412.4 miles
Total since 1/1/10: 7,532.1 miles

What happened to Spring?  This morning’s temperature was 30° F, a temperature we haven’t seen for at least 2 whole weeks.  By the time I got back home, there was ice in my water bottle again.  I though we have turned the corner and left this behind.  Oh well, warmer temps will come soon enough.

Nine riders were out this morning (really 10, Jim K somehow got ahead of us, and didn’t ride with us until the return).  Eight were out for breakfast.  It was a good morning ride, although I struggled a good deal.  It wasn’t easy this morning.  I’m still looking for what the pattern might be for these rides that seem to be more of an effort.  It was a relaxed pace.  Several riders are riding a Brevet tomorrow.  I think we had better weather at the beginning of the month for our ride than they will tomorrow.  We continue to have lively conversation about the route we will use in the mornings.

I’ll be sending off my letter to the bus company today.  I’ll be anxious to see if I get a response.

I’m really looking forward to next Friday’s ride.  It will be my one year anniversary of riding with SPP.  I’ve missed five Friday breakfast rides in that year, and only 3 of those Fridays did I not ride at all.

  • Friday, April 9, 2010 (sick)
  • Friday, June 4, 2010 (out of town)
  • Friday June 10, 2010 (out of town.  Rode in Gettysburg, PA)
  • Friday, July 16, 2010 (sick)
  • Friday December 17, 2010 (Rode Sailing Down to Solomon’s 200k)

I think that makes Fridays my most consistent ride day, and one in which I’ve often put in longer rides.
