Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Rode only 13 miles yesterday morning but it was followed by a 7 mile run. Wife did the same thing and added a set of doubles tennis for a triathalon of sorts.

I did 40.7 miles yesterday on a fairly "fast" loop....i.e., barely any climbing by New England standards (like 1,200 feet), but it was windy as all hell, so it kept the speed down a bit in parts.

165 km in 5:43, from Montreal to the Ontario border. The four of us rode steadily and with discipline at 30-32 km/h the whole way, with the usual starts and stops. I could easily have ridden 50 km more. Easiest century of my life. Perfect weather.
when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

Saturday was 78 miles through Bull Valley. Rolling and hilly and fast.
Sunday, 72 miles up to County Q in Wisky. Also fast.
Went out A's and B's together on Saturday. Sunday was a B+ (we caught the A's at one point)
Pulled up front most of the days. Fun, fun, fun.
