I think this is my first training ride on my nice bike! What fun.

I hooked up with Dave H for a 'long ride' and we did just that. We ate, drank and much of the time we rode it was actually side-by-side which was kind of fun. Dave pushed the pace on every incline which hurt me especially going up Jones Road... later on I was better able to stick with him. On the flats we just took turns pulling and did not force it.

Towards the end of the ride I had a bad patch and Dave took some super pulls. Luckily I recovered somewhat cruising through May Valley.

This was just what the doctor ordered! I have not done any longer back-to-back rides this winter so to race yesterday and then to ride today was fantastic. Sure, I was pooped when I got home but I was not destroyed and the weather was fantastic. At some point I took the vest and outer gloves off, that was nice.
