Since I had not climbed the hill of the Cape Fear River Trail since June 5, 2013, with Brian Gaskell, I knew it important establish I can with my road bike. I will be a GREAT challenge to do so on a single speed bike. Anyway, this morning’s ride after I lifted weights at the Tokay Fitness Center.
At one point, as many a 7 cycles, now 3 + an ElliptiGO.
Actually a metric+ of 64 miles. I’ll take it!
The temps this morning’s ride made me not want to start a ride before sunrise.
I’m happy to have safely finished this ride. I began at 6:45 a.m. and finished at 11:42 a.m. I only stopped for traffic lights. I ate and drank on the bike. The US 421 leg of the ride, between Lillington and Dunn, slowed me the most because of the long climbs.
Today’s ride 31 miles. My long ride in this series is planned for this Saturday, 09/14. Then, medium length rides leading up to the metric century, 10/05.
I rode 25.1 miles this morning. I headed out for 30 miles, but wanted to vary the route and then decided to maintain my goose egg. I think missing the additional mile won’t kill me. This weekend, I plan to get more anyway. We shall see…
