Finley River Redux
Today was not a great day until the end. I decided to celebrate my new prescriptions for an ACE inhibitor and a statin with a big fat bike ride. This genetics thing and aging combination is not always all that easy to deal with is it? Went back to Finley River country and the hill that gives me blurry vision. God what a beautiful day it was here, partly cloudy, 80, NW breeze bringing in low humidity. I rode about halfway with son Chris and his new girlfriend, and went on when they turned back (she is not an experienced rider). Nothing really remarkable to report except that I am gaining some more insight on this hill climbing thing -- no blurred vision tonight and I still got where I was going. I'm starting to adopt the attitude of what the heck, I paid for all these gears, I might as well use them. I got just over 30 in and feel much better for it. I need to take Lovey's camera along and show you folks where I ride. It''s not Colorado and surely not Pacifica, but it's not chopped liver either. I promise to try to take some pics next time.
P.S. I did ride faster tonight than ever before. 40.1 MPH. It was not all that scarey, especially compared to the statins and ACE thingies. New lard speed record.
It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.
