Had a chance to get in a couple of unexpected hours riding today. The temps are now low enough that riding is tolerable in the middle of the afternoon. Grabbed the single speed and went back to do a repeat of the Wednesday night ride that kicked me pretty hard. Today the weather was perfect and I'm finally learning how to ride the bike. I was able to breeze through the sections that gave me trouble the other night, sit and crank more than standing and when I had to stand up it was almost effortless. It was just like when starting to ride and you can feel your strength increasing with each outting. Ah yes, life is good!
