Resume Riding after short break

by on April 11, 2011

This Ride: 21.6 miles
Month: 224.1 miles
2011: 1,707.8 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 7,827.5 miles

I rode not an inch since Thursday’s 200k. I could have. But I didn’t. So it was good to get back out this morning.

The 57° temperatures brought people out in droves.  We had 13 riders this morning.  We had a new rider.  Barry heard about the group from Ann B, the woman who wrote about our riding through the winter.  Mike C and Evan were out.  The day’s agenda was Mosey Monday … but we had a pretty brisk pace going for the ride, or so I thought.  As it turns out, it was the same pace I had for the 200k.  Imagine that!

We all listened to one another’s ride reports.  Clif and Chip rode a 300k on Saturday that included one rider being struck by a deer, plenty of fog, and over 14,000 feet of climbing.  It makes my ride sound like a little jaunt in the park.  There was a lot of good conversation, and a lot of catching up on even non-cycling events.

The sunrise was gorgeous.  The sun was a big red ball in the sky as the ride was finishing up.
