50mi. When do I get to start a ride at 11:40am? It’s when our office is closed for Columbus day and nearly everyone else has to go to work. Suzanne and I left from the small parking lot at Loggerhead park, ready for max sun. Riding up to Sandsprit park was good, I spent zero time in the aero bars because I knew the way home was going to be windy and tucked for the back 25 miles. At the park I drank Carbo Pro water and had a Clif Bar. The ride home was all into the southerly wind. I pulled and kept the average over 20mph most of the way, very good progress in the middle of the day. I was tired at the end of it, we went to Whole Foods and had salad, good because I wasn’t too hungry, I guess the Carbo Pro was working well!
