Now, just add hills
The plan for today was to ride 65 miles. I found a 66 miler on the LBS site, and would improvise as needed. Oh yeah, I improvised all right. Today’s ride was the longest I have ever done on the bike. I enjoyed myself and the only goal was to finish under 7 hours. Even with the extra mileage I did that, coming in at 06:22:39. On my ride, I got chased down by Heather B. on her scooter so she could tell me they will be mountain biking tomorrow night. I don’t think I’ll make that, but who knows. I made a new friend:
I also managed to avoid running over a squirrel that ran out in front of the bike. It came to a dead stop, and then ran around in a couple of tight circles before barreling back in the direction it came from. Sorry, no photos of that. I’ve got the mileage for the LIVESTRONG Challenge, now I hope I can conquer the hills of Montgomery County, PA. Heather
