Tuesday ride #1



I was going to go for 15-21 miles, but Charles wanted to ride this afternoon, so I just did 10.5 without him.

CIBA ride with Ruth



This was my second organized bike ride ever. It was sponsored by CIBA, and I did the 26 mile route with Brandy's friend Ruth, who is training for a bike ride in two weeks.

As you can see, Ruth wasn't very fast, which is fine. I wasn't in a hurry until the end when I decided to break away for a couple of miles and put the hammer down. I did this ride in support of Ruth, so I figured I'd better stick around her to help if she needed it.

The folks from CIBA were wonderful! Kim, Chris, and Mirren all stayed with us and were committed to "not leave anyone behind." I might actually look into doing another CIBA ride as this one was very enjoyable.

Ridin' ridin' ridin'



The first 7.5 miles, I did with Charles, then he started bonking, so I dropped him off at his house and picked up the pace a bit. Nice and sunny today! 70°F!

Blowout



Yesterday, at 2.58 miles, my rear tire sidewall gave out. Thankfully, I didn't crash, but my day was over. So, I got me some new treads and hit it again today. Both rides were with Charles, however, today, I did the first 3 miles without him and the last 1.5 miles without him.

Wheweeee, it was 82°F today. A real scorcher! Anyways, another ride with Charles with a pretty stiff S wind (14 mph), but we were faster than yesterday, so yay.

Back to it



Took an unscheduled week off last week due to illness. I'm feeling better, thanks.

This ride was with Charles. We are going to do it again tomorrow, hopefully faster.

No, I didn't pass on



I just took a week off. I did the first 6 miles with Charles, then dropped the anchor AND the hammer! Here's the tale of the tape:

You'll notice a marked increase in speed at mile 6...
