“Striker, listen, and you listen close: flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.”
Another 4:20am alarm clock wake-up to ride today. This time at least, it was for a good old-fashioned beat down. 30 or so riders making hay on the North Shore of Lake Michigan for 33 miles. Still no computer on my bike, but based on last Tuesday I’d say we did at least 23mph average speed. I felt a lot stronger this week, but I would like to start doing some end-of-ride sprinting to see how I do with that. We took off at the end of the ride today, but I’d like to try a few hundred yard sprint to a line to get the feel of it. Maybe next week, now that I am starting to know the route I can give it a shot. I know there are about 5 guys that would jump with me and grind me into a fine powder.
2 hour SPIN tomorrow, and then finally a return to the Spokesmen for a the Thursday Puker hill repeats.
