It turns out that there are things you can do on your bike to get in an approximately 20 mile ride that are not hill repeats of Squak Mountain. Wow. Who knew?
For instance, you could do:
–a meandering, easy ride to Sunday morning coffee and croissant
–over to a friend’s house
–to STP packet pick up and the grocery store
–back to STP packet pick up because they gave you the wrong stuff in your packet the first time, and thence to coffee with friends
It’s been a relaxing week of easy riding. I’m still on track with the Tenth of the Tour, and I’m definitely feeling a training boost from the Rainier ride. My legs feel good, so here’s hoping I can get a lot of miles covered tomorrow before it gets too hot, and then take it easy into Portland.
