14.

What was new was that, just for fun, I made sure it was nearly 100% on the drops, even in the climbs. There were two turns where I reflexively reached for the hoods, which must be what I normally do, but I caught myself and moved back to the drops. A fun experiment. I have the bars higher these days so Iíve mainly been riding the drops but I was curious what it would be like to do a complete ride. The answer was, just great!

40.6 miles today. First 40+ mile ride in over 5 years. Also did it at 18.5 mph. Faster than I've gone for a ride other than some flat loops the other day.

two metro san diego rides: a morning ride for 11 miles on the '85 pinarello treviso and an afternoon ride for 31 miles on the '88 nishiki olympic. sweet vintage steel dreams.
