A neighbor and good friend of mine has jumped in with both feet. Two FCR3's one for him and one for his wife, a tag along for his son and a new used bike for his daughter. He and his family have been on a few rides and today he went out with me for a 26 mile ride. This was his first ride of any distance and the "jerk" had absolutly no problem keeping up with me. Finished at 14.2 mph. I guess the fact that he is a runner and is in very good shape especially for a 45 year old played into it, but did he have to ride so strong? I could not keep that pace earlier this year.
Oh well, it was a good ride, but next time I am going to have make him hurt a little.
