Great fun today. With the ride to and from I had just over 4 hrs on the bike. The last hour of hills seemed a little quicker than standard Shabbos (+1) effort, but then again, I was purdy tired.
Missed having Sean and Brady on board, but it was nice having Marco and Matt Pav. tow us for most of the ride. So total headcount was 7 of us: Me, Bryan, John, Ryan, Roxxy, the Pav, and Marco.
Good times all around. We ventured up North then West, then Northwest, turned around, headed back toward Elkhorn and got some of my favorite brick road mashing in before meandering back home. I haven't been on the Bike Masters Wed night ride route in a while. I have many memories of pain on those roads. I really should visit their rides once in a while this coming summer. It's just really convenient to hop into the Trek Store ride since it's right by my house.
So I'm off to a great start of burning calories for the Weight Loss '08 challenge. Ran an hour or so Saturday, didn't do the ride in the afternoon though (Sorry Matt), and put in some good miles today. Now I just have to somewhat watch what I eat and ride just about everyday with at least 2 long rides a week. That'll get me down to fighting weight by May.
