I like to kick, stretch and kick!
I rode FIFTY!
This Saturday’s long ride was worthy of kickin’ and strenchin’ because we rode my farthest distance yet. Yup, you guessed it, FIFTY! I finally found a few folks within my group that ride a pace that is comfortable, yet challenging, and I was happy to have them by my side.
For three hours, we pedaled through multiple East Bay suburbs and with one left hand turn, we were in the middle of green hills, pastures, and beautiful old barns. From clouds to sun and some not so pleasant winds on the way back, it was just a great ride. While my quads were definitely a bit sore on Sunday, I can feel myself getting stronger little by little. It’s a slow process, but I’ll take it.
To top it all off, I rode in my new jersey (yes, now I have two). Arrrrrrrrrren’t you glad I posted this horrible photo and pun?
Oh cycling. How I am this close to saying the “L” word to you.
