56 miles, longest ride so far
Highlands Bikefest is in town and we have over 200 riders on rides from 14 miles to 100 miles. I rode with some friends and some new friends and we did 56 miles. I felt the best I've felt since my surgery a month ago and relieved to finally be improving. The hills were not too bad but the wind was brutal. 20 mph winds are wonderful on your back but painful in your face. With that kind of tailwind even the hills are no problem but with that kind of headwind the down hills are still a problem but I'm so pleased with how much better I'm doing nothing could discourage me today.
My Lemond hit 300 miles today and other than needing to true my rear wheel after hitting something and loosening a couple of spokes the bike is perfect
My only issue is the seat. My butt hurts after about 25 or 30 miles and I'm thinking about upgrading my saddle but I'm not sure where to start. I did a fitting at my LBS on the ASSOMETER and moved my saddle width up from 132 to 154 but it doesn't seem to help much. Got any ideas?
Red, like the color my hair used to be.
