Spring is in the air! Sunday, April 24th, 2011

With the temps soaring into the 70’s today it was time to go for a ride. We’ve only had the opportunity to get out once before due to the weather and some hectic schedules. It was a fine day! Even with the extra baggage (yep, 33 lbs of overnurishment this winter) it was fun.

Finally broke 30 miles! Monday, July 5th, 2010

Alhough I haven’t been able to ride as often as I would like to, each ride has been a little longer than the last. I finally broke the 30 mile barrier on Friday night. The weather was nice, the wind was down, and my energy level was right on target.

The only thing that held me back from riding 40 miles was the lack of food and electrolytes. I need to start planning better for my nutritional needs on the longer rides. Water is great, but by the second hour you really start to feel it. As I approached the three hour mark it became evident that I wasn’t going much farther without refueling. I’m thinking of starting with water and gel packs for my next ride. I would consider bringing a Powerbar, but with the soaring temps over the past week I can only imagine the resulting mess.

So much to learn!

Nice Father’s Day Ride Monday, June 21st, 2010

Took a nice ride through Mercer County Park, Nottingham Way, Washington Blvd and Rt.526.  The sun was strong and the weather was great.  Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ride.
