Hit the road again this morning.
I got up this morning, ate a PBJ,Banana,and a grape juice then hit the road with no real destination in mind. I had good parts of the trip and bad parts.
Good-I made it up each and every hill even though I felt like giving up on several.
Bad- They weren't big hills and I was barely going fast enough to stay upright.
Good-I'm finding that I really like my new bike.
Bad- country roads around here are made out of stone with some cement thrown in to hold it together, and is not real comfortable to ride on. Average speed bad roads 9.5 or so. Average speed well paved roads about 14.
Good-I didn't stop for anything more than stoplights until I stopped to talk to a friend at about 17.5 miles.
Real Bad- While standing there talking to her my type 2 Diabetes reared it's ugly head and my sugar apparently crashed. According to her I went ghost white, and I know that I could barely keep my balance standing there straddling my bike and I sort of zoned out. that was a first for me. After a glass of juice I was good enough to get the last 2.5 miles home though.
All in all Jerry's got a lot of work to do.
AVE SPD 10.9 0r 11.
Top speed 34.5 (BIG downhill)
