    1 ride a week isn't cutting it, especially with a touch of bronchitis

    28.33 miles
    32 mph max
    15.5 avrg
    1hr 49 min saddle time
    82 degrees 69% humidity

    looking forward to riding more and the cooler fall temperatures and lower humidity

    on a flat section during the last 1/3 of my ride I was cruising along pretty good at 17mpg pushing the big ring up front and 3 down from my little one in the rear 7 spd cassette and along comes a dude in his high gear and passes me at about 20mph I guess. his cadence was lower than mine. it's always when I think I'm doing good that I get passed by guys like that.
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    Here is a tip: You are not in a race, enjoy YOUR bicycling, what someone else is doing should be irrelevant to "how good" you feel about bicycling.

    This. Because for all you know he was going all out.

    Because you can pick any cyclist in history you want, and if I can then pick the event, I can always find someone who can crush whoever you picked.

    In other words, there's always someone faster then you.
