Tonight after work, I did 30 mile bike ride to take advantage of daylight savings time. In the old days, I used to go out and get piss drunk to take advantage of St. Paddy's Day. I must be mellowing out...
On the same note, one hill that gives me particular grief on the Raleigh (lowest gearing is 34 x 25) was notably easier, tonight. I used to stop about .25 mi from the final turn to a) catch my breath, and b) keep from vomiting - tonight, I happily avoided b. Now the goal is to make it all the way to the turn w/o stopping.
...this might need to be a weekly thing...
