Monday morning road ride with the Spokesmen – I brought the 69er. The new 36:15 gearing for the WORS race Sunday feels ridiculous compared to the biggest previous gears – 32:16. We were rolling along at 20mph this morning, a speed previously reserved for downhills only on this rig. Spinning up the paved roads felt like butta, I only hope Suamico is as flat and fast as they say it is.
I had no problem holding my own today, but there were only 3 of us and it was a fairly mild roll; bc was on the MASI commuter/’cross rig. Tomorrow’s ultra-hilly TMTOT will be another story. Probably closer to 12 guys, all on road bikes, with tons of short, quick climbs. That will be a much better test of my legs or lack thereof.
At least I was able to sweat out all of the leftover fried goop I ate off my kids’ plates at State Fair yesterday.
