Bicycle Rides, Rambles and Blogs

The Weather and Roads are Improving.

Here is is, April 22, 2014.  So far this month I have racked up 212 miles, bringing my total for the year to 436 miles.  I did back-to-back rides Sunday and Monday of approximately 38 miles and 48 miles respectively.  To say the least, I was tired last night and went to bed about 3 hours earlier than I normally do.

The good news is I felt strong on the hills.  I even took on my dreaded nemesis, Green Street Hill in Northboro.  At no time during the whole ride or with the steep pitch ups in the climbs did my heart rate reach my max and trigger warnings.  It was a great day for a ride.  It started out cold but halfway through I had to shed my windbreaker and buy some more water.

As for the roads, they still  are not in the best condition.  Most of the potholes have been filled but there are still some nasty man-eaters out there if you do not pay attention.

So stay safe out there and get out and ride!
