Fun ride on sunday

So this is my "screw training have fun month", that and yesterday being my birthday I decided to do como street. I went for the longer option. It was fun to see what fast riders are capable of. On the hills they were chatting, I was huffing and puffing "spinning" 50/25 where I would usually be in 34/something. It didn't came as a big surprise when my chubby azz got dropped on "the wall". Wasn't really a bad climb, but just couldn't keep up the pace. Regrouped with some folks from UCI at the top, big thanks!, and did a fun rotating paceline on Santiago canyon. After that some of us extended it to a scenic 80 miles ride.
What I learned? I need to get faster, and I lost some of my pack riding skills. On the switchbacks I let the gap form because I felt somewhat nervous taking those unfamiliar turns too fast.
