    I suffered my way through Levi's Medio. Ugh, that was my longest ride in 2 years and I suffered through every inch of it. Time to get back into the cycling swing of things!

    On Saturday I went and rode Levi's Gran Fondo, but did the medio route (~61 miles). I did slightly better than last year, which is great considering how little I've been on the bike this year.

    I rode from San Jose up to Mountain View to have lunch with a buddy, and then back down to San Jose. It was nice actually getting on the bike again. I haven't gotten to do much riding lately!

    (emerging from my long nap in a cave)

    I'll be there, rain or shine. I need a good long ride, and doing this loop with the transit to and from my house in San Jose should get it for me.
