Tuesday was a full day.  I rode with the SPP at 5:45, attended a Continuing Education Event in Frederick, MD all day, then went to support Randy Mouri’s fundraising event in Fairfax, VA.  I returned home at 10:30 pm and went promptly to bed.  The ride made the day possible.  We had a dozen riders out, in part because the pace was promised to be relatively slow as riders were still recovering from the 300k last Saturday.  It was nice to take it easy.

Wednesday’s ride promised an easy pace too, for those who desired it.  We started off easy, then Dave pushed the pace and most of us couldn’t resist the challenge.  I hung on tenaciously until the hill in Round Bay and then was dropped as if I were some disgusting piece of filth (or an old man who just can’t seem to climb the hill very fast).  Soon the fast riders were further than the sight lines on the route and the slow guys had taken a short cut so I huffed and puffed and struggled along the way riding by myself to the end of the trail.  The fast riders met me as they came back north.  Two riders, Mike & Bob took pity on me, waiting for me at the turn around and we proceeded back together for what turned out to be a reasonably quick pace for the day.  I like riding with others better than I like riding alone.
