    Whoo! Made it!

    I reached the first major goal I had set for myself when I started riding again (just three weeks ago!) on Saturday; to complete this ride:

    http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united...lena/378701131

    Well, not exactly; I live on the route near the start/finish so began and ended at the house, and I rode the loop clockwise, instead of counterclockwise. A bit over 23 miles, with 2050 feet of ascent. I pedalled up the driveway 2 hours and 17 minutes after I left. Then I did pretty much nothing for the rest of the day!

    I don't know exactly how far I went, since washboard roads tend to make my GPS shut off. I figure I lost about two miles to them, but since that almost always happens on downhills, I'm pretty sure about the total ascent. I stopped about 18 miles into the ride to eat a granola bar, get a drink, and stretch.

    Now I want to do it in under two hours!

    Excellent! Good job!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
