Here's some stats for Brady:
I took the first #55, but I have no idea what kind of bus it was. I'm not as OCD as Brady.
~32 blocks of travel
Picked up 8 people besides me and another guy who got on when I did.
That's one person per 4 blocks!! Or about 3 people per mile!
5 people besides me got off at UNMC.
And that's all I got. I don't think there was a bike rack on the front of the bus, but I don't think I could get all my bike stuff together, then not ride. It would feel really weird. Although, that would have been a better plan than how I rolled yesterday. It was 22 in the morning, so I had 3 layers up top and lots of extras to keep warm. Then, when I got out at 3:30, it was fricken 50 degrees. So all my layers had to be either crammed into the handlebar bag, or worn. I got plenty warm on my ride. But it was a nice change from last Saturday's ride.
On the ride, which was down the Keystone then over to HighGear and back, I did some one-legged drills. Those are TOUGH!! But I can tell it's a good thing. It worked my core and my leg muscles. So this month, I think I'm going to do a couple of those sessions a week, do some weight lifting/core workouts, and whatever longer rides I can fit in. Then next month, I might try to do some intervals just so I can keep up with Bryan next summer. Having people refer to me as a cat 2, then promptly getting dropped....often...does not sit well with me. I'm not planning on racing since I can't afford it, but I'd like to help people suffer on their group rides. You know, cause that's what friends are for, to help you suffer.
