    Nice!

    Just consider a big heavy bike as extra resistance training.

    I'm calling it a recovery day......but I'm sure I"ll beat myself up pretty good there.

    Very nice! I did 53 miles the other day, the most I have done since I started riding again. I did the ride again, thinking I would at another ten miles or so but when I got to the point where I had to make the decision to either go home or go farther, my legs told me to go home. I am not there yet but I am encouraged by your example!
