Sunday afternoon I had my best ride ever. Went 10.7 miles at an average speed of just under 7 mph. Sound impressive? Considering that Rainbabe was with me on just our second ever ride together, I was impressed and very proud. We packed a couple of sandwiches and drinks and rode over to the lake and along the bike path. Stopped in a little park and had a picnic. After a little while we rode back home. On the way back her backside started to express its dissatisfaction, but she kept right on cranking. I wouldn't have gone quite so far with her, but she insisted. She is quite fit, and I knew the exercise part would not be a problem, but I explained that seat conditioning takes a few days no matter how fit you are. Right now she rides our daughter's mountain bike. It is a pretty good fit, but I hope she gets interested so she will let me buy her a decent bike.
