Ride the Puddles

Climbing

Posted by bikezilla on August 18, 2009


Great day for a hard ride.

Temps were in the mid 80’s, so the rain was warm and comfortable, no lightning.

The trail softened up and, damn, the ride got hard fast.

I spent most of my energy concentrating on taking the first section of hill at a hard, steady pace, fighting the pain and tiredness in my legs until I slipped around that first, sharp curve.

The rest was not as fast as I’d anticipated. In fact there were times when just keeping my legs pumping was a victory.

Not really happy with this ride. So I’ll do it again on Wednesday evening.

AGAIN my Cateye computer screwed up in the wet, though I attempted to protect it with some packing tape.
