Saturday’s Group Ride

August 25 ride

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.
