    Ride 42 - Sky Loop with Bike Group - Sort of

    OK - It's the bee - I rode the dreaded sky loop today for the third time. First time nearly did me in - Second time not so bad. Third time -definitely a hilly ride - with long and short hills.

    I started out with the group - even stayed with them for about a mile or two then shifted into granny gear and whoosh they left me! I had told them I had a cue sheet and would be fine - plus I had a friend in the faster group who was going to wait for me at the store stop and we would ride the rest of the way together. As we rode - my friend remarked that she was very impressed and I had improved a ton. It's very hard for me to see it. Especially with a 13 mph AVG! I do know though there were alot of hills - since I know the route - I knew I could do all the hills. I just went into turtle mode (Like the Slowskys). This time there was nothing I couldn't handle.

    Anyway - it's a great training ride..someday I will hopefully get better and ride with the group - til then I just go on my merry way. I also had lunch after the ride with the ride leader - so it was not as if I was totally by myself- atleast I was able to meet up with someone after the ride.

    Miles: 39.76
    Ride time 3:02:42
    Avg Speed 13
    Max Speed 40.2 (Whoosh!)
    Cad Avg 69 - Jeesh!
    Avg Pulse 140
    Max Pulse 169
    Calorie 789

    OK that's it from the Bee.
