The bike is lubed and the kit is washed and I rested this week to prepare for this weekends 200 mile/2-day organized ride from Seattle to Portland. I completed the ride last year with three other "newbie" riders. This year its just me and the trusty Roubaix. Ive been riding fairly steadily for the year since my last crack at it. My hope is to finish well within time this year. Last year we rolled in as they were literally taking down the "Finish" poster on the second day.
Not lost as much weight as I wanted to during the year but I am proud of myself for still "getting out there" at least three times a week. I feel good except for my allergies playing up this week. A late appearance of the sun has kicked up the pollen that should have been kicked up in May.
Anyways...see you all in 200 miles
