Yesterday I completed my first forty mile ride in thirty years! Every one knows I have a Gary Fisher Tiburon Hybrid, and I went with a friend that has a Trek 7300. We didnít push ourselves to hard, because it was in the upper 80ís, with upper 80ís for humidity, but we did a good pace (for me) and we had a blast doing it. We saw a deer standing over us, (again without my camera) wild turkeys, I ate a butterfly, and we got chased by a dog. Oh yea, it also rained on us for about five miles. We stopped to lend a guy my emergency pump. All that and a good deed too! What a great Sunday! Last year at this time if someone wanted me to ride I would have found any excuse to not go, but for now I am on top of the world. It looks good for me to be riding a solo metric century sometime this fall. I will be riding from Zinnia to Cincinnati.
No questions this time, just excited about a small accomplishment, and I had to let everyone know. If it wasnít for everyone here I donít think I would be riding as well as I am. OH Yea, the new Bontrager Comfort Saddle is outstanding. No more numbness. Thanks for the input.
