I just came back from the longest ride I`ve done so far. 47.76km or slightly less than 30miles. It took me a little more than 2 hours, but I`m happy with that. There are some seriously steep climbs on this round. One so steep that I had trouble keeping the front wheel on the ground. Seriously! That might of course be because I have a little extra in the back that pulls me backwards (= my butt!) as well as a little extra in the front that makes it difficult to lean forward (= my tummy!). Nevertheless, I am home again home again (thank you Mr. Bob Villa) and am very ready for the latest “Fringe” episode.
