2013 Ride #14 (Big Loop)

View Larger Map

I love it when everything seems to click okay … for the first time this year, I felt good on the bike; sure, I had to stop a couple times to get my heart rate back down, and I didn’t set any personal records, but by the same token, I didn’t feel like I was suffering or struggling just to turn the pedals over. It’s days like this that help me to remember what I love about cycling, and which give me hope that I’ll be able to survive the Crusher … just 2 months away.
