Cut an hour off our favorite training ride

We have a very hilly 26 mile ride that we use for a training ride. Last time we did it was a month ago before our cycling vacation. The bikes were about 15 pounds heavier
then ( I add weight gradually to get ready for touring), the weather was hotter and
I wasn't trying to make time.

But an hour is an hour. For us, averaging 10 mph in hill country is darn good.

Update: I was so sore in what seemed like a dozen places this morning. Alleve was definitely part of breakfast.

Still glad I did it.
