Just another fun Saturday out on the road.

Often times, I'll be driving along a road I've driven many times and wonder what it would be like to ride it.
Often times, I then go out and do just that.
Just ~25 miles today but I tried to make it worth it.

In the end, not as bad as I had thought though, after a busy week of riding, it was a little harder and maybe more "painful" than it might have been.
Yes, I opened up a suitcase of pain and found myself in a spot of bother
But that drop at 22 miles sure makes it all worthwhile. Wheeeeeee

A couple of observations:
I'm climbing the 1st miles of Sharp Park Road now (3.5 miles in) in about 9 minutes. A year ago it took 20.
And, I'm spending a lot more time riding in the big ring and enjoying it more.

Just do it.

Keep the training up and book that trip to Europe for next year. At this rate- you will be climbing Ventoux on a whim.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
