So I don’t know how to post photos or links here; I need to take some classes. Let me see: Take WordPress classes or ride my bike. Sorry, WordPress.
So G posted up about leading a ride. I had 2 days off and C is out of town; a ride was needed. N,M,L,R joined us; all people with whom I’ve ridden for many months and years.
Yet the pace northward, even with a tailwind, challenged me, and I met that. 128 was more challenging with its undulations and the tendancy that L & N had to take the bit in their teeth and go off the front.
We communicated well so as the weakest (ugh, how I hate to own that) rider I knew where the regroups were, and appreciated the communications. I worked hard on the pulls and to keep up, and I know I’m not as fit as my co-riders. I really appreciate that they waited for me. And it was an effort, definitely one I needed, and I hope to drop N by July. Heh. J/K. Or maybe not.
