So I'm ahead of last year's mileage but I'm still antsy to get out and get some miles in. I'm trying to ride more hills by taking more trips from Wakonda to Irene via the County Line Road in hopes of preparing myself for Tour deKota in June. I rode 30 miles on Monday night taking the hilly route and for me, keeping it at a 14.7 mph average wasn't bad. Two hours in the saddle without a break is enough for me.
Now due to other obligations my next chance for a ride won't be until Sunday. I wonder if the weather will cooperate? I would love to get in a longer ride. So far my longest ride has been 32 miles.
And I'm trying to work on some riding skills - making myself get out of the saddle on the hills and not braking going down hill (yep, I'm a Timmy!).
I want to ride! I have my Bike Friday in the trunk of my car along with my cycling gear.......just in case I can squeeze in a ride anytime, I'll be ready!
