Woohoo! I did 26 miles on the bike today and am so pleased with myself. When I signed up for this bike ride, I was pretty convinced I was getting in way over my head. And a little over half way through the ride, after what felt like a nonstop uphill climb, I was convinced I’d been right. I was asking Dave for the direction to the nearest metro and ready to call it a day. But, I was assured that the hills were over, there rest was mostly downhill or flat, and advised to stick it out a little longer. I did, I made it to the end with very few complaints, and now I’m walking on air.
Time to go over and wash the bike. Seems biking in the rain this morning and then all the street crud, makes for one dirty bike. Maybe I can get a nap in today somewhere before I go to pick up the vehicle for moving tomorrow.
Yay! Another excited whoop of success.
