Go Big or Stay Home…


October 2014

Mrs. Bgddy went for her second organized group ride today with my friends and I… She managed to hang with us for 8 miles at an average pace of about 16-17 mph into a brutal headwind and I was absolutely stoked for her. It was my buddies, Mike, Phil and Chuck along with the Mrs. and I.

The temperature was great for the ride, mid fifties or so, but the wind! You know those days where you’re riding into a 20 mph wind but it feels different, heavy, like someone cranked up the volume… That’s what we were facing this morning.

We headed directly into the teeth of it till Mrs. Bgddy was ready to head back, then we headed south. From there it was just a blur of awesome. We started with our eyes on 20-25 miles, I rolled into the driveway with 35 hardcore, fantastic miles.

While the wind whipped us for much of the ride, we had an amazing stretch of 10-15 miles with the wind at our back and we took full advantage of it with speeds approaching 28 mph on the flats.

Now it is most decidedly time for a nice nap… Good God, I’m a happy man. Saturday’s just don’t get much better than this…

    What a phenomenal day! I did my first 50 mile day of my life. Had a little snafu (will write about it soon).
    I just love how you write about your Mrs. Your pride and love ooze out of your words. It warms my heart!

    (it was 80 here, sorry)

  3. Wild, wild here today, KOMs all over the place. But such fun downwind.
