A Nice Tuesday Morning Ride

by on August 2, 2011

This Ride: 30.8 miles
Month: 91.1 miles
2011: 4,365.5 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 10,485.2 miles

Once again, the legs were not there for Terrible Tuesday.  I was fast enough to hang with the group until Round Bay, then stayed on Old County Road and allowed them to catch up.  I hung with them on the trail until just past Glen Oban, then faded fast.  It was a moderately quick ride for the 8 or so riders out.  In the end, I rode with Mike C from the south end of the trail and added a few bonus miles to get to 30 miles on the morning.

This was one of those mornings where I just put in the miles.  I’ll be adding another 30 or so miles this evening with the Tuesday Pizza Ride, so the day will again be somewhere above 60 miles.  I was able to maintain 21 mph or higher on the last hill of B&A Blvd.  That hill has really served to help my confidence on the smaller hills.  It will soon be time to set the same kinds of goals for the hills on Old County Road.  It is all part of becoming a better hill climber and changing my attitude about these little rises.  Then, when the rides go into winter mode and we stop going fast three days a week, I’ll be ready for the hill in Round Bay making it my target all winter.

Mike C. served notice that he intends to ride more consistently in the winter this year.  I’ll help hold him to it.

I’ll post the Pizza Ride results tonight.
