"What is IT?" you ask. Riding, of course. On Tuesday I took the Bianchi up Bliss Road and then up County Road OA, finally adding to my climbing total after nearly 2 weeks of out-of-the-saddle existence. On Wednesday, I retrieved the Trek from Dan, it being now tuned up and proudly sporting a new bottom bracket. On Thursday, I took it up Bliss and then up Old Vineyard Road, where, if you watch the computer, you can see stretches of 15% grade. Shifting was a breeze... See, I KNEW the problem wasn't operator error!
My climb total has crept past 20,000 feet. Am I going to make it? And again you ask, "What is IT?" The 125,000 of climbing I'd like to get in before the tour starts, of course. Wellllll... It is just under 11 weeks. So short a time that I suppose
Now, it’s lunch time. If you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll have my usual.
