Bike fitness is coming
I wanted to ride LONG last weekend, but once again I wasn't able to due to scheduling with our caretaker. So, I had just under 4 hours to ride. I made the most of it and happened to be on a good day and was able to get in 75 miles with an average speed of 21.0 mph. Really happy with that. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've been able to average 21mph on a training ride by myself. I just wish I could have gotten in about 20 more miles. I'm a little nervous about the 112 miles and 6000ft of elevation in Challenge Penticton next weekend. But, the last 15 miles are downhill, right?
