Friday Breakfast Ride: What a Difference a Day Makes!

by on March 28, 2014

Yesterday: 20° F, 2 riders, no breakfast.  Today: 40°, 13 riders, breakfast.  Today was a lot more fun.

We encountered barely noticeable sprinkles of rain, enough to make some of the road surfaces slick.  We chatted, told stories, got competitive at times, and enjoyed breakfast.  Sometimes is less about the ride than it is connecting with others.  Most of the talk was about the upcoming Fléche (April 26-27) and what to do about our very dangerous inconsistent rider.

I had no speed or energy.  Even getting dropped like I was riding a beach cruiser didn’t sour my mood though.  Since Monday I’ve dropped 4 lbs (some of that certainly water) on a low carb diet and just didn’t have the fuel reserves to go fast.  I’m now down 16 lbs for the year!  I’m presently wearing a medium T-shirt that doesn’t look half bad on me, meaning it isn’t too tight.

The next few days are looking wet, so we will see how that goes.  Hopefully I can get a ride in on Monday to finish off the month strong.

For the month, 567 miles.

Total distance since June 1, 2013 = 5,547 

Total funds raised for the Malaria Campaign = $7,029
