No I didn't ride a crit or anything like that, a corner in my cycling fitness. We had a mild winter here, (not going to rub that in to you in the plains, midwest and eastern seaboard,) so I didn't lose time and fitness to weather. The last few weeks I have noticed that my rides have gotten faster and our mole-hills don't bring a twinge of fear like they used to. Even the weeks of gusty winds we have had haven't stopped my riding or slowed me as much as it used to. I think that a base is beginning to be built, hopefully, it will become even better as the season gets in to full swing here. The bike fit and its set-up seem to be just in a groove for me, everything feels right on the bike while I am riding, regardless of if I am just spinning on a flat straight or climbing. Please don't wake me up if I am dreaming.
I cannot say thank you enough to all of the 50+ gang here, the encouragement and support have helped me to keep riding and to overcome the problems I have. I hope each of you can get this rare feeling, I know how low I have felt at times and how great things feel right now when I am riding. Now if the winter will just let go and the warm weather can set in so the season can begin in earnest.
