Today's ride: Longest ride to date
I rode 45 miles this morning, which is the longest ride I have been on since I started tracking my distance at the end of September.
It all pushed me over the 700 mile mark since the end of Sept.

I don't like the way it calculates the time and pace. According to my Garmin I averaged 14.4 mph. I have seen consistent improvement with my averages as I lose weight and get stronger. So far I have dropped 42 pounds.
I am pretty happy with that as this route had the most climbing I have ever taken on.
We rode out to Saguaro National Park East and rode the loop out their. Read about the ride here
There is a mile long hill that really wore me out.
I wanted to take photos but my wife's camera wasn't charged so I couldn't take it with me.
The weather was really nice today. It started out a little chilly for us AZ natives (48F), but it warmed up to about 60F.
I am trying to add 10 miles every month in preparation for a 70 mile ride in April.
