Did two rides this week that have both left me sore, the first was with JC and the second was Luke. The routes were about the same, mixture of hills and flats. We raced side by side up most hills on both rides, and attempted to kill each other. There was a little bit of drafting on both rides but not alot as we never want to sully our efforts by sucking wind. I’ll admit I had to pull into Luke’s draft a few times to keep up.
Tommorow I’m taking a bit of a recovery ride with my friend Terry, it’ll be a laid back 55 mile back road cruise, we’re leaving at 5:30 to beat the heat and the pace will be mild. I tried to get ahold of a guy who reads this blog, who I went hiking with once, who lives in Harrisburg, who works with my sister-in-law, who rides a road bike, but I couldn’t get his phone number, if you want to ride with us tommorow or anytime look up my number in the phone book and give me a call.
I got this sticker once on a ride from a bike shop that said, “define your life, ride a bike” I didn’t get it at first, but now it makes perfect sense. More and more I’m becoming defined by bike riding. Can there be too much of a good thing?
