around Lake WA on a single speed

What's that you say? I have a race coming up in a week? On a bicycle? Yikes... I suppose I better remind myself what it's like to ride one then.

Since I'll be racing a single speed it seemed appropriate that I ride the same thing.

I took along some music but was not able to push very hard... I suppose yesterday took more out of me then I wanted to admit.

It's just now that I'm realizing why I took the long way home pretty much every day last week. It's because of this upcoming race and because I could not find the motivation to actually get out and 'train'. It's pretty obvious that my bicycle racing season ended with the High Cascades 100 which was three weeks ago. And you could argue that it was even earlier.

This ride was fun! It has actually been quite a while since I was on these roads so n spite of the fact that I have covered them countless times, this time was not boring or tedious. I enjoyed the scenery and even passed a couple of geared bikes. :) I did forget just how heavy this machine is though, my road race bike and my mountain bike are so light in comparison. Still, it's a super fun ride. These days that matters more to me.
