Back in the saddle April 9, 2009

Posted by goirishgorebels in General.

I know, no updates in three days.  Busy life and sick kid makes it hard to get rides in.  Add to it, 30 degree weather in April!  Are you kidding me?  I hope we have seen the last of the cold.

I don’t know what it was today.  I took one of my normal routes, only I rode it in the opposite direction this time.  Remember, I get bored.  Either this route has more downhill than up, my new shoes are really paying off, or this spring weather had me firing all the right cylinders.  Whatever it was, I averaged 2 mph faster than normal (for me, that means 14 mph vs. 12 mph).  One a 100 mile ride, that’s an hour faster.  After three days of rest, it felt good to get back in the saddle.  Let’s hope I don’t have to wait as long for the next ride.
