sunset_bike_rideThanks to the weather and life in general almost one week had passed since I last got on my bike. So I was a little apprehensive about todays club ride, it was to be the longest so far this year – 45 miles – and I really wasn’t sure how I’d do, considering my longest prior was 32. I probably shouldn’t have given the extra distance a second thought but I had visions of me holding the whole group up and embarrassing myself. Well to make a long story short, it was an awesome ride. I felt strong the whole way, was up with the leaders the whole day and felt like I could do another 20 at the end of the ride. So I guess the moral of this story is a little rest does the body good. Not that I want to take whole weeks off again, but if it happens I won’t worry so much about it.

Thanks to the busy week I’ve been remiss in posting my May Bike Loot review which arrived a few days ago. Have no fear, it will be up shortly!
