anticlimax

Despite riding late into the evening yesterday (and being wired until 1am), Eddie and I had to get up early to squeeze in our ride today...darn work keeps getting in the way ;)

We planned to avoid use of the gas guzzler and decided to ride our singlespeeds to the secret trails, do a lap on those, and then ride back. We figured this would take us 2.5 to 3 hours. Except...1.5 hours into the ride and we hadn't even reached the trail yet so we decided to turn around and head back with no SSingletrack action. Boo. Of course, though, we hit zero construction, little traffic, and almost no red lights on the way back so it's possible we could have had at least a little trail time. Oh well. On a positive note, I am feeling pretty decent on the road right now...leg speed and climbing are both going fairly well.

Yesterday I went up to Addictive Cycles to join their first womens group ride with the chicks N2 racing group. I did 1.5 hours by myself on the hot pavement (95+ degrees) and joined the group for another 1.5 hours or so. The highlight was meeting some super strong (and competitive!) beginner riders that wanted to race up every hill..it was awesome. Watch out ladies...give them a year (or less for some of them) and they will be kicking some major butt on the road. The low point was almost getting run over by a cop. Yes, a cop. I should probably take the time to call/write in a complaint to someone about that today.

BTW, women: if you live in the Gwinnett area, you should definitely check out the Addictive group ride, it will be leaving every Tuesday at 6pm from the shop.

Anyway, off to the hospital for some internship work...and then it's an early day on the road again tomorrow with Mr. "I'm on a mission to get kicked back into shape by the girls" Neal.
