51 miles. I was hoping for good weather that would allow us to go further than the 40 miles we had done twice a few weekends ago. Bingo - great sun, but a wind from the NNE. Jessica was rested and ready, her performance would show that in stars! We left after 1pm, hopes of … Continue reading The Push for Next Week’s Ride

51 miles. We leave with the idea of going far - I hope we are both feeling ready when we hit Bridge Rd, that's the "point of no return" for going 30 or beyond it... courageously of course! We stop at the Lighthouse Park to see Kylie and Rachel at a lacrosse practice. It's nice … Continue reading First 50 for Jess.
80mi bike/one hour (6mi) run - Thwarted from a typical early start because I dropped John off to be taken to run camp at FSU, I was leaving Loggerhead park alone at 7am. I rode to The tiki hut solo, then redesigned the route from 60 to 80 miles feeling that would be good for … Continue reading Confidence builds
100mi. I didn't leave the house thinking it was going to be a century ride. I thought after the Hangover 100 on Wednesday that I'd like to (with all of my free time) see more of the south county, A1A, etc. So I called Robin G., maybe she'd be up for doing some of the … Continue reading Tired, wet, dirty, happy
50 mi. What could go wrong on a sunny Sunday morning with the group? I arrived kinda late, in time to use my refurbished pump and also help Lilia get her bike ready. I had the new Garmin in Biking mode, all my drinks and treats, I was ready. I started a bit after the … Continue reading Some wind, no tech
40 mi. Not looking to be away from John for too long, I chose a shorter than most ride. I arrived early to the parking lot but ended up being one of the last riders to leave the park. I saw Austin's new Shiv, a surprise purchase while he was up in NC... great bike … Continue reading A new park on the route
100mi. Showing up to start at 3:30am makes for a tired ride in the dark. Anita brought Austin who was the most excited of the three of us to do the century ride. Charlotte's last big ride would be on her Specialized Transition. Big difference, as she was strong in the late miles as we … Continue reading One hundred hot ones.
58mi. Today I met Scott on his "solo" ride to the tiki hut and back. He claims to have been doing two rides per week on the streets, and three spin classes per week at LA Fitness in the mornings. It's working, he was very prepared and strong on this ride. I felt labored on … Continue reading Early again
