First time on the bike in just over a month … and I suffered like the fat pig that I am, at least while turning the pedals. The downhills were a joy … it’s kind of nice being able to hit 40mph on a descent without having to work.

Rode with Bart for about 3 blocks, saw Jen Hanks dropping down towards the Zoo from Wasatch, saw Alex Kim coming across Parley’s from the southern part of Wasatch, then rode with Jennie and Nancy from 39th South to the T intersection at Wasatch and Cottonwood Canyon Road. The sun felt great, when it wasn’t hidden behind a cloud, and while my heart rate was sky high, it did feel good to turn the legs over a few times.

One things for sure … it’s time to stop avoiding the weather and get out in it if absolutely necessary, because pretty soon I’ll be complaining about the heat, since I tend to melt when the temperatures get above 75.
