Today, I rode to Middletown MD (again). As it turns out, I did not realize that they were having a festival and that I would have to walk the bike through town to get to the restaurant. In any case, the weather was good and the ride was good, even if I didn't set a blistering pace because my legs were still sore from yesterday's ride. My weapon of choice on the ride was the 1950 Norman Rapide which, as I've stated previously, I like more every time I ride it. There is nothing in my stable that comes even close to the Norman.
Over the course of the 30 miles, there was nearly 1600 feet of climbing. Believe it or not, I'm actually starting to like hills. If you were to have rode with me back in May though, you would have never thought I'd be anywhere near as proficient at tackling them as I now am.
