Mrs. Grouch and I went on our first organized ride since I broke my hip. I took the 27 1/2 mile option that had no real hills but a lot of small ups and downs. The ups were harder than I expected them to be. Did I mention it was 91 degrees and the last 6 miles were into the teeth of a headwind? Overall I was pretty well satisfied with my performance but I found my way to bed about an hour earlier than usually last night.
Friday morning is another (30 mile) ride with a group that I've never ridden with before. We'll see how it goes.
