Ride #??? Not counting anymore... :)

OK - today one of our local riding groups (North Atlanta Riding Club) go together for a ride at Barnsely Gardens area. We did about 50 miles. I remember last year during the NARC rides I was definitely the slowest rider.This time I was able to stay with the group - even managed up towards the front so I could be surrounded by the group to feel better mentally and physically with some of the drafting....

We ended at the Beer garden and someone bought me a (light) beer for being most improved rider. Same woman who told me I was getting skinny. OH hallelujah (though weight has been around the smae for months...so she may be delusional...but hey it felt good to hear)


Avg 16.2 Yup - woo hooo!!! 50+ miles.

Lean muscle is heavier than the stuff you lost. Congrats on your improvement!

Congrats on both the improvments in riding and physical fitness. You worked hard to get where you are.
