So this cycling thing seems to be taking. It’s fun. It’s keeping me in good shape. I’m meeting interesting people. What’s not to like?
So in the past month, I rode 464.24 miles. I had 7 rides of more than 40 miles, including one over 50, one over 60 and topped out at 73 miles. I spent almost 34 hours in the saddle. I raised 300 bucks for the American Diabetes Foundation. I joined the Oakland Yellowjackets and rode all 4 Saturday morning rides. I’m still a little bit of chicken shit on the descent, but I raised my top speed from 28 MPH at the beginning of the month to a rip-rairing, hair-raising, death-defying 43.3 MPH coming down the Patterson Pass at the end of the month. Not a bad month.
