Well, here goes. Still holding a steady but high pace. Winding up along the river, I was feeling tired. It had been a busy day, a good day though, I got a lot accomplished.
My goal again was to simply hang with the group as long as I could.
As usual, I got dropped on the first steep grunt climb. I'm going to have to work on that, not sure how though. The group was bigger so a couple of others got dropped as well and we motored on, catching the group at the stoplight.
And that is how the ride went for me. Hang with the group, fall off the back, dangle, catch back on. I didn't really get dropped hard until the end of the ride. I quit trying to ride that pace, the legs simply would not give any more.
Fortunately for me, about 5 other were also off the back. When we turned onto Hendersonville Rd, to head home, the head wind was horrendous. It felt like it was blowing about 20mph. We ground our way back and each headed to our own destinations.
Another day, another ride.
