Group ride this morning, 53 miles, 18mph average. Sustaining a pace like that for 50 miles is a landmark for me. Granted, our area is totally flat, so I'm not too excited about the new level of achievement. I've got to start training on hills. The group today was small; 4 guys.
One 28 year old, two 54 yr olds, and one seventy year old. The 70 year old kicked our butts! He is from San Francisco, and is living in our area of Southeast Texas working for one of the refineries for a few months. Since he has joined our group, he has pulled us up to a new level! I thought mentioning this to the 50+ group would be appropriate, and might even be encouraging to some. Carry on, have a good day!
