Interesting Day

I went to scope out the riding leg of a triathlon for next weekend.

On the way, not even out of town yet, a driver crossing over the centerline almost hit my car. A narrow miss.

Here's the data Course Pre-Ride

During the ride we past the scene of a motor cycle accident, not sure how badly the motorcyclist was injured. There were plenty of people on the scene, said rider was laying on the ground, police on the way.

After getting into familiar territory Christopher took off, putting 2 1/2 minutes into my time. Good riding Chris!

I feel slow.

Oh...I am slow.

Starting back

After one of the longest layoffs of my life, (off the bike), I'm back.

I logged 4 rides from October 26 thru Feb 28 with a total of 99.4 miles this year!

Time to get going again, it's going to take some time.

Why don't I ride more?

I think there are any number of reasons why I don't, probably more than why I do. Since the list of why I do ride is shorter let's start there.

I ride because:
I can.
I enjoy the countryside on the seat of a bicycle.
it's freedom.
it reduces stress.
it reduces weight.
it brings me in contact with friends who like to ride.
it makes me faster over time, which is very satisfying.
my son will ride with me.
sometimes my wife will ride with me.
sometimes my daughter will ride with me.
sometimes my whole family rides with me.
my mother and father, who will be 80 & 79 this year, ride more than I do.
I need the exercise.
I just put on new tires.
I need to get more "data".
few people can say they've ridden 200 miles in one day.
it's just downright FUN!

Why do you ride?

Why do you ride?

Never question why you ride, just question why you don't ride MORE.
