And it was FABULOUS! I only rode for 20 minutes because my butt was already hurting and I didn't want to overdo it on my first time out.
About 1/4 of the way I realized my legs were on fire because weren't extending enough so I raised the seat about an inch and OMG what a difference. My arms felt better, my butt felt better and Man did my legs ever feel better.
I had a little trouble shifting to get over the overpass and wound up walking my bike up the incline but I wasn't worried about it. I'll get the hang of it. I also realized what a difference the extra weight makes on the downhill. WOA that was FAST.
Can't wait to do it again tomorrow!
