My St. Patrick’s Day Ride

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Today was the day I hit the 100 mile mark with my “new” Pan-Mass Challenge wheels.  The bike and I are getting along very well, getting used to each other.  With each ride I’m becoming more comfortable and fluid with my shifting so my rides are becoming easier.  Today it was an 11.65 mile ride, with my average speed at 13mph, but the real thrill for me was to see that I’ve passed that 100 mile mark.  My rides generally are getting longer, but mostly they are sandwiched into a time slot preventing me from the longer ride I’m getting more and more anxious to have.  I guess patience is the word for now.  The weather is looking good for the next few days so I expect to get more riding in.  Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to get in a ride of 20 miles or more this coming week — that would be terrific!
