The Cure for Stress-induced Insomnia





One badass bike…



Plus this:


One badass pace…


Equals Zzzzzzzzzz…..

*Disclosure:  The duration is correct for the ride, the average is distorted because the last half-mile is used as a cool down.  Our actual average for Tuesday night was between 20.8 and 20.9 mph.  For the “B” Group.  I use the time that we cross the finish line (City Limits Line) for historical reasons.

It’s been a pretty tough week at work.  I’m lucky if I get three or four hours of sleep a night.

Not Tuesday night though.  No, I made sure everything was taken care of before the club ride and ignored my phone until the ride was done.  I was out (asleep) before 9:30 and didn’t wake up till the alarm went off at 4:30.  Seven hours may not seem like much to normal folk but that’s an hour or two better than I’m used to getting on a good day.  Tuesday night seven felt like twelve.

No doubt though, a good bike ride fixes a lot of problems for me.
