    finally broke 30 miles, almost had 40

    i went for a ride yesterday, it was a great day, and i managed to take a few photos with my cell phone:


    this is me about to die after three steep and long climbs, (3% grade, each about 300-400 yards long)


    i finally got a chance to take a photo of my bike

    as i said, i finally got over 30 miles, and nearly made 40 miles; the whole ride was 39 miles and about 1300 ft of climbing

    i got a chance to try some gels. i bought some clif razz gels, the first tasted like hot sh*t, and bitter as hell... but i couldnt get enough of the second one after the series of climbs

    all and all, it was a beautiful ride

    Just wait untill you do some big hills and grade.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Good job!

    I spied a wild turkey on my commute in this morning but couldn't get my cell out fast enough.
