So the other day Hermes, Velodiva, Cgallagh and I are tootling along on our tandems, and Velodiva announces that she's riding a time trial in a couple of weeks and would I do it with her?
My first reaction is -- because I've only done one time trial, and that on our tank of a tandem. My second reaction is curiosity -- just how fast can an almost-53 yr.old woman ride over 10 miles? Ultimately I agreed, because I can't resist a challenge.
Now that I've committed, I need some information -- any advice out there from you former racers? Should I be sprinting my insides out over the next 10 days, or will longer rides do it? Should I even try to drop 5 lbs.? I have no aero gear and don't plan to buy any for this event. A book or article to read? Dare I post this on the road forum for their entertainment?
I'm sure there will be pie after the event.
