    Birthday

    Yesterday was my 52nd birthday - I didn't ride my age - I rode about 4000 miles in airplanes. Since I have been traveling for a week and not on the bike I rode only 30 miles today to loosen up - tomorrow I'll do the birthday ride if the weather cooperates. Otherwise it's 4th of July weekend.

    I was about to nominate you as the new "Iron Will", until I saw "in airplanes".

    My congratulations and best wishes to you on your birthday. My sympathies to you for having to endure 4,000 miles in, I assume, commercial flights. Haven't had to do that in a while and do not miss it.

    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Happy Birthday CF. I figure doing the birthday ride within a week one way or the other is good.

    And I did! I got the milage and my weekend climbing in.

    Thanks all - well in the words of Louis - I got'er done.

    No pie along the way - I had my favorite Ice cream (Peanut Butter Pandemonium over two cannolis last night), my daughter gave the cycling past 50 book and I took the HR monitor along for this ride. I pretty much kept my HR under control with a few jumps up near 5% of max on the big hills.

    Here are the stats:

    Mileage: 52.1
    Avg Speed: 16.5
    Verticle Climbed: 998ft
    Max Grade: 19%

    It was a hot & humid day and was still a little tired from yesterdays 30 miler - shouldn't whine though otherwise Pcad will tell me to HTFU.

    Thanks again!!
