not quite personal best September 13, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — gogopance @ 11:10 pm

Had high hopes of going for the record during yesterday’s annual Fall Bike Tour. What started out as “Let’s do the 75 mile route this year!” quickly turned into, “Ummm, what shortcuts can we make to ensure survival?”

A few extenuating circumstances didn’t help matters: one important team member down due to food poisoning… 5 too many cocktails on Tour Eve… and a forecast for steady, chilly fall rain all day. All of which made for an irritating 6:30AM alarm.

BUT! We completed just over 60 miles, the rain stayed away except for the first 5 and the last 5 miles and we powered through hefty winds (without stopping) for a 25-mile stretch. A respectable jaunt indeed.
