Ugly weather brought Tuesday's outing up short, after just 8 miles. We got to climb Gin Shop Hill though, TWICE. Tonight was better, if you like hot, stagnant air and 100% humidity, and the full 20 miles was "enjoyed." A new wool jersey by DiMarchi (cheap at chainlove.com) was really comfortable and the hand crafted wool cap worked again. At the end of the ride, the dome was dry. Gotta love it.
The 1st big hill on Tues was unexpectedly hard. It was a bit better tonight, but I really didn't feel good until about 1/2 way out on the ride. All of a sudden, it was like the valves opened up, and fuel was flowing. I finished the ride energized and would have enjoyed some more. We had a new rider Tues (Bo) and today another one (Preston) both of whom are way faster than I am. They're also young enough to be my kids.
Looking forward to the weekend!
Mostly recaps of two wheeled rambles through the countryside, but sometimes thoughts on other things.
