Wow! What a great ride Cha-Cha and I had on Monday morning. I was out for about 2 and a half hours and I'm feeling it today. Actually, I was feeling it as I began hour three yesterday, but luckily the trail switched directions and I got out of riding into a pretty stiff headwind. Obviously, I need to better prep for my next ride. More hydration and more fuel.
I hate exercising after eating, but I was on fumes by the time it was over. Oh, and I almost fell into the river. I think it's time for me to learn something about cycling. Clementine Peddleford has 18 gears (if I'm doing the math right) and I need to know how to use them. I damned near fell into the river during a mis-timed gear switch! I came home and did a little googling and have learned a thing or two that I'm anxious to use. I cannot wait to go again!
In order to go again, I'm going to have to switch some things around. I have a meeting on Saturday morning and meditation/church on Sunday, so I'll have to figure out a way to still participate in those activities while finding time to bike out of the Texas summer heat.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Gear up.
