Yesterday was the perfect capper to a perfect Spring week on the bike. Last week had it all, great speed, medium effort days, and enjoyable miles turned with my wife – capped off with a 47 miler with my friends.
Temps were all over the map. Working backwards, we had freezing and windy but sunny yesterday, warmer but we got caught in the rain on Friday, and perfect conditions Monday through Wednesday. Last Sunday was sunny, but cool and windy.
180 miles last week. Just 28 miles short of my best week ever. In the first week of April.
Now, before you get the wrong idea, this most excellent mileage didn’t come without help. The truth is, my buddy Mike moved from Flint to a home just two miles from my house so we’re riding together a lot and because of that, I’m putting in longer rides than I normally would, and a lot earlier in the season.
It’s all good.
Happy Easter my friends.
