Another Thursday night ride went off and I almost didn't make it home. After spending last week at the beach and the first half of this week hangin' with the kid and off the bike, my legs were C quality. And it hurt. I managed to have fun though because I was on the bike.
I find that I tend to talk less on the bike than I used to. Observing and absorbing what is going on around me. Focusing on my pedal stroke and trying to be be smooth.
A dozen folks showed up and Andy Kimble is now leading the B group which makes it nice for folks who get dropped from the A group. Especially if it is new people, who don't know where they are. I remember asking a farmer outside of Shelby for directions once when I got dropped from that group.
I looked fast though thanks to Kevin Hessler. I wore Liberty Bike's new kit and some sweet Defeet socks. The designs are wild and as always, the socks are comfortable.
