When I started riding again this last spring I set two goals I wanted to accomplish. Get to all the parks in Rochester and ride the Douglas Trail from Rochester to Pine Island. I finally rode the Douglas Trail. Including the ride to the trail head it was a 36 mile round trip and not counting breaks I averaged 12 mph out and back. I realize the speed and distance aren't all that great, but up till now my longest ride had been a couple of 20 milers around town. And the ride convinced me I need different handlebars.
