17-19 mph madness. So I ride until I'm dropped. This was my first time out with a pace group clearly out of my league. I bailed 1.5 miles from the start. I managed to finish up the night with 15 miles so not a total loss. My body needs to adapt to the drop bar posture and just being in the saddle for hours at a time. Perhaps the best news of the night is it was a pain free ride. No saddle, back, neck, shoulder of foot pain. I'm actually shocked at the relative comfort of the saddle.
Today is Saturday and I hope to get in 20-30 miles. I generally prefer to ride to somewhere and do something as opposed to traditional loop or out and back. Today the George R Brown convention center is hosting a Maker Faire and a gun show. A few miles further would get me to the recently opened and currently only Krispy Kreme. I'm personally convinced that Krispy Kreme is the only doughnut allowed in Heaven and the hot light never goes out.
