I'm finally working up to more time on the bike. This week I was able to squeeze in just under 3 hrs. I always seem to get home and am just minutes short of my goal. I don't bother riding around the block, maybe I should for the psychological edge, but I don't.
I've been looking at maps again. I'm mentally ready to go when the warm weather window opens, but I'm thinking the body needs a couple more weeks of base miles before I go long.
I thought I would try to convert my road bike to a gravel grinder. I can only fit 700x28's on it though, so the ride was super stiff and rattle me pretty good. Someone told me I always end up doing things the hard way. I responded by saying that you never know. That's why you gotta try. Some things work for some people, while the same thing won't work for someone else.
I got home and told Rhonda I was going to have to get a new bike.... she laughed. Someone needs to explain to her the importance!
