I should probably consider riding more than once or twice per week if I am going to have any fitness by the time the stage race rolls around. But, for now that can wait. It was a long,slow ride up and over Beaucatcher, then up Elk Mtn. But I did it, and I enjoyed being out.
My running legs are definitely better than my riding legs at this point. But, if I remember correctly, in the past, my running legs have transferred well to the bike. Should be seamless when I start training again.
