Wearing my new shoes on my new pedals. Will need to do some adjusting. I was so keen on having rigid carbon soles, I thought I'd tighten them as much as I could (all that extra efficiency). On the morning after, I think I can feel my feet again.
At first, I was tempted to bike around the block a few times to make this an even hundred. That, of course, was on the way out.
At this rate, I'll be able to do the Hill at Westport
without breathing hard. Mind you, if I don't get out for a longer ride, that's all I'll be able to do.
I was so cocky. Sunny, 12 degrees, headed out along Riverside Dr., doing 42km/h, cadence over 100. Sure it seemed windy. But so what? All that skiing I did this winter must have prepared me well for my first ride of the season.
