Day 6

Today's Ride:
25.05 Miles
2:38:27 hours
Temp: 86 F
It was sunny, sunny, sunny today! This was the ride that I was saving up for, and the weather couldn't have been better! The humidity was comfortable, the temp was (a bit on the warm side) comfortable, and my legs were feelin' great!

I biked from my hotel out to Crabtree lake and the mountain bike trails in that park. My destination ended up being 11 miles from the start, so I knew that I'd better take it easy if I was to have any energy for the trails. Oh, and then I had to peddle my butt home.

Needless to say, I made it home, so I must have done OK managing my legs. I made two pit stops on the way back.

The first one was for a Frappuccino from Starbucks. I took my time drinking it, so that was about a 20-30 minute stop.

The second one, I decided to grab some lunch at Chili's, so that was probably a 30-40 minute stop. I didn't bother to time either of them.

Then there was the stop between those two stops that I figured I'd better pick up some sunscreen. 20 miles without sunscreen......and I decide to protect myself for the last 5. Brilliant! I guess I didn't want to totally fry myself. The truth is...I forgot to pick some up on the way out to Crabtree and when I finally remembered, I was way past any stores that would carry such a thing.

And one more thing. I got the old bike up to 34 mph. Yes, it was going down a long hill and yes, I was peddling to beat the band! Thankfully, I didn't crash.
