I had so much fun yesterday and this foggy fall weather is so cool I decided to do the same thing today.
Today I decided to get away from the cars and headed out into May Valley. I almost turned on the auto pilot which would have taken me up McDonald's hill until I thought this might not be very fun/possible on my single speed so took a more gradual route up to the valley instead. I think it was a good call.
Music was my friend again today, man is it fun to ride with tunes.
There were a couple of sections today where I got on the drops or rested my forearms on the tops of the bars and maintained a good pace. Not 'hard' but not taking it easy. It felt good.
When I got home Shelley and I went for another neighborhood walk. These are a great time! We get to talk, enjoy the scenery and I just love getting out of the house.
