When I got up it was 41 F. It was just over 50 as I launched and I wore my winter garb. It was too much. I rode back up the driveway and changed into my normal summer stuff. I never felt cold. I hit a good HR early and held a high one for the bulk of the ride without feeling overwhelmed.
I had 4 riding goals today. Climb Keeler Lane, ride 50 miles, average 15 mph, and climb overall at least 4000 feet. I exceeded those goals and they are mid-season goals, so I am very pleased.
Here is the Garmin link
I didn’t catch this rider up the beginning hill of Keeler until she was at the foot of the steep ascent. I thought she would be with me up the climb, but she turned around at the level-off before the real climb.
It was a really beautiful day.
Lots of great foliage in the bright sunlight.
As I came in for a landing I crossed over Main street and this bug bus passed me. I love that VW engine sound.
