Yesterdays Ride.

This is yesterdays ride. Distance wise and hill wise is was a personal best for me.


http://connect.garmin.com/activity/112067611

The ride itself was only 88 miles. I forgot to turn off the Garmin when we returned to the start point. The weather was great, mids 70's to low 80's.

Didn't bring the camera as I wanted to go as light as I could. Didn't get any pie, just a Subway sandwich and some chips. Dont think having the camera would have helped. Didn't really see anything but a couple of hang gliders and the inside of my buddies tires (Gatorskins no less) cause he ended up with 3 flats.

Gonna have to get me one of those GPS thingies. Looks like they might catch on some day like this internet thing. Looking forward to the day I can do a ride this long.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who forgets to turn their Garmin off It does up the average and max speed for a ride

15.2 is a pretty good pace with that amount of climbing and at that altitude. Great ride!
