Death to drafters, it's like "tailgating" - for you folks not up with the bike lingo. Ok not really, the skull and crossbones say "no" but the eyes say "yes".
I got back on the bike saddle this week, my crotch and butt can attest. Hit my first spin class Thursday night, my hot date was a state of the art Cyclops spin bike. Totally whupped me but I was saved by my running fitness. Nevertheless my power wattage was 75-80% of what it used to be. Then Saturday I went for a 40-mile ride with friends. It should have been a Friday morning ride but when I heard it was going to be in the mid-40s in the morning I promptly turned off the alarm clock. Anyway I managed to get a good ride in without taxing my legs too much but nevertheless my legs felt less than stellar during my 5.5 hour run today. That's another post however. No more back to back long rides and long runs! They whupped me last year and it's gonna whup me again.
B and his main squeeze, Spamsi. Couples that ride together... Spams is training for Ironman Brazil. I was supposed to go but I went to the Philippines instead for the holidays and there went my Brazil fund.
We ran into friends throughout the ride. Here's Karen in red, former club pres and still sporting the colors after all these years.
