As some of you may know, I went an entire month without so much as touching a bike during my trip to Ukraine (I never could track down Vino). I rode for the first time this weekend, and, much to my surprise, my legs felt good and I turned in one of the quicker training rides I've done in a while. The fact that I was spurred on by my son-in-law, and that we had the glorious experience of stumbling onto a community Huffyfest, thusly making us feel like rockets in a field of tanks, probably didn't hurt either.
So, if I showed that much improvement after taking one month off, wouldn't it be better if I rode just once every three or four months? Or even better, ride just once a year, saving my effort for the Old Kentucky Home Tour, one of the harder centuries around?
I was just wondering.
