Just got back from my first 100-km ride in twenty years. Man, it felt great! Gorgeous day here, though pretty windy, and the bike just felt like it was jumping today. I felt strong the whole way, even with some pretty serious hills and headwinds toward the end. The best part was that my time over 62 miles was just ten minutes longer than my time over fifty miles was a month or so ago... and it was just as hilly a course on a windier day. I guess I've probably had a better day on a bike at some time or another, but I can't remember when just now.
And tomorrow Mrs. Raket and I are going to do a loop around Owasco Lake, one of the Finger Lakes. Hope she likes the cycling jersey I got her for her birthday. (The real present was the Roubaix, but I needed to have something else for her to unwrap this evening.) I think she's gonna look pretty cute in it.
Boy, I like riding my bike!
