One of my lifelong lessons my Dad gave me was to "never force anything"-generally related to tools but can really be applied in many different ways.
I flunked the lesson yesterday. Tried to push or "force" my sunglasses into my jersey pocket and below are the results. The folks at Rudy Project have worked well with me before so we'll see how gracious they are with an idiot this time. Heck, looks like a manufacturing defect to me!!!
In my defense I was just starting a rather long 6 mile climb and messing with my glasses while struggling to get going up a 10% grade. It turned into a long day-8300 ft of climbing over 97 miles. Boy was I fast.........14 mph avg.
I knew it was going to be that kind of day when less than 1/2 mile from the start there was an unplanned detour that wound up being a total of 10 miles round trip. Plus the weather was NOT sunny as promised and the temps were a LOT colder than promised. But no complaints-always great to be out riding.
One other commentary.......this was the first descending I had done this year to speak of. I had to reteach myself how to descend!! Nothing like bombing it down a 6 mile descent wondering if you're going to make it through the hairpins.
