Blueberry Pie Al a Mode

by on July 29, 2011

This Ride: 28.1 miles
Month: 904.4 miles
2011: 4,274.4 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 10,394.1 miles

What a difference a day makes. Despite a little soreness in my thighs, my legs felt good today and the ride was easy.  I’m glad, because the heat and humidity was back in full force.  It was 80° F as I left the house at 5:20.  I took a shorter route to the Rusty Bridge, adjusting my derailleurs every few hundred yards to get them dialed in properly.  I think I’ve got them where they need to be now.  There were about a dozen riders out, with most going into Annapolis for breakfast.  Some are preparing for a 200k ride in the Poconos tomorrow, so there was a good deal of conversation about that.  Bryan will complete his Super Randonneur Series tomorrow, that is a 200, 300, 400, & 600 k brevet in one calendar year.  Funny, he will finish with the shortest ride.

Mike B and I traded jabs back and forth about the miles we are riding.  I conceded the distance to him.  He is riding to work today and hopes to complete 1000 miles this month.  I’m stopping at my 904 miles for July.

As I look forward to August, I may take my week of vacation completely off the bike.  That means I may not hit my original goal of 900 miles for the month.  We will just have to see how it goes.

The reference to pie in the title?  That’s what I had for breakfast this morning in Annapolis.  It was mighty tasty.
