On checking the weather yesterday, which showed a spot of snow after the deluge of rain stopped followed by a glorious day today (at 40 degrees F to boot). I envisioned an excellent ride on my new bike as I drifted off to sleep last night. On waking, much to my shock and chagrin, we got a couple of inches last night. The roads were covered and I figured it was unlikely that I’d get out this afternoon no matter how nice it was.
I was mistaken. The roads dried out at about 3:00 this afternoon. I just got back from a nice 14 mile ride on my new bike. I averaged 18 mph with a killer 10-20 mph head wind/cross wind for most of the ride (3 of the 14 had a tail wind), so that 18 was pretty good, not to mention I spent a few minutes stuck at traffic lights.
In any event, that Trek is one great bike. Everything fit so well and the bike was so much more forgiving than I was used to with the aluminum Cannondale… and quiet!
Next season is going to be fun – and I’ll be going into it in the best shape I’ve ever been in.
