Commitments Matter

by on April 25, 2012

Having committed to the Tuesday Evening Pizza Ride, I bailed on Tuesday morning’s ride (I know, this is no excuse.  I could have ridden both.) being pretty fatigued and yet made the Pizza Ride.  These commitments matter to me.

There were three of us for the Pizza Ride; Janet, Kristi, and I.  We set an easy pace down the trail negotiating all the pedestrian and cycling traffic, then picked up the pace a bit once we hit the roads.  The first half of the route was quite heavily traveled, yet we experienced only one vehicle driver who sped by us without the mandatory three foot passing distance.  That’s actually better than I remember last year.  It was a nice ride.  We finished at the local pizza joint where I purchased 2 calzones and carried them home on the bike for supper.

Then, this morning, 10 of us hit the trail/road for Wicked-Wimpy Wednesday.  There were 6 who were taking it pretty easy, although my pace averaged over 17 mph for the morning ride.  It was a great morning to be out and there was plenty of good company.  I think I do better on the morning rides if I eat a banana before heading out the door.  This morning was one of those banana days, and the ride felt pretty easy for as quick as we were.  I was still strong at the end.

These Rides: 49.7 miles
Month: 589.9 miles
2012: 1523.1 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 15,376.8 miles
