Able To Stand Up

Warmer temperatures brought more riders to today’s ride.  A couple of faces I haven’t seen since October of last year.  Dan and I did our usual loop then ended up at BikeTek.  Knowing that my legs were still sore from the marathon I already told myself (and Dan) that I would be turning around just after Farmingdale Rd.

An East wind meant a fast pace on the way out.  Surprisingly, my legs felt better today and I could actually accelerate when I stood up on the pedals.  This meant I was able to hang with big boys, at least until we headed West off of Farmingdale Rd.  Turning around though mean a headwind home.  But at least Dan was there to talk to.  I totaled 22 miles for the day and felt pretty good.
