Well, let me tell you, I am BEAT. Let me also say, I have never felt so accomplished.
After my first ride of 20 miles, I decided to push it in the second ride to 36 miles….. Yes, that is just as far as it sounds!!! It took me roughly 3.5 hours to complete this loop. At times, I almost quit. At times, I literally stopped and my legs cramps up.
In these first 2 days I have learned an enormous amount already. In 2 days I conquered almost 60 miles and 5 hours being in the saddle. Now, this is definitely not any world speed time, but it surely isn’t anything to scoff at either! Of course, there are the typical things that you should know about cycling, i.e. bring food and water, there are things you cannot learn without riding. I have to learn my bike. Learn how it feels, embrace it.
Now I will begin riding a good 5 days a week and training to try out some events this summer. Join my mailing list to stay in the know!
