I titled this the small group C ride on Strava. Basically, there were only 3 of us in group C today. All previous group C riders seem to have graduated to the B group. It was kind of a bummer, but what can you do.
The answer to that is to join the B group as well. I am sure I could manage the distance, but I just don’t seem to have the energy to ride at a strong pace all the time. I had my moments. I did my personal best on 7 segments–which I had ridden before. I also got the bike up to70–though Strava only gives me credit for 68.4. In instances like that, I like to trust my onboard speedometer.
We missed the rain, which was a plus. Also, traffic wasn’t too bad on most of the routes we took. As you can tell from the map, we were all over the place. At one point, I overshot the turn. I guess I should pay more attention to the route. When the leader caught up with me to turn me around….well, we had gone quite a distance.
I was completely knackered afterwards, but I felt like I put in an honest ride. That’s good enough to make it Today’s Perfect Moment.
