To many of you this is no big deal but for me it's a modern day PB! Some of you may have read my post about a month ago about my diabetes being out of control. There was a cool story about me getting a new road bike. Up until a month ago it had been 8 years since I had been on a bike. I got my new bike a month ago and have been riding as much as possible but do to work I have only been getting out approximately twice a week. I have been walking during lunch everyday and taking short walks at home to keep my A1C in check (my numbers have been outstanding since my Dr. visit). Until today my longest ride since I became a born again roadie was just over 12 miles and the rest have been between 6 and 8 miles. I told my wife this morning that I was going to try to ride more than 20 miles. I decided I would ride at a leisurely pace since this would be a long ride for me at this time. I turned on my iphone, fired up my Strava app and hit the road. I rode from the town where I live to a little reservoir called Puddingstone. My pace was leisurely alright but not because I wanted it to be but because this ride kicked my ass! When all was said and done I had ridden a little over 31 miles (my phone died at 30.3 miles roughly a mile from home) and averaged just over 10 mph.
Thanks for listening fellas!
BTW, here's a pic or two from the airport business center near the lake!
Here's a cool piece of art where I stopped to eat the lunch I packed while watching the planes take off and land across the street.
And the obligatory pic of my bike.
