well thanks... i'm not one of many words or an orchestrator of a story the way Ellsrider is but here goes..
8 AM. Get to Beercans House. Drive to the Withlacoochie Trail head. Forgot my shoes, turn around go back to Riverview then back to Withlacoochie. All this takes about 4 hours and we leave for our ride starting at 12:15 or so...
The legs felt great for the ride, really everything felt great, the weather was perfect. Our first 30 miles was pretty much uneventful except for the abnormally large Black Snake that was sunning himself. He was over 6 Ft. easy.... anyways, i hit a wall.. maybe most people don't but it seems like anytime I do a long ride.. like Ididaride, Croom or whatever... i hit something. that happened to be around 41 miles... my feet got really numb... my wrists started to bother me too... i'm glad Beercan was there for me to bitch at for about 7 miles.. started to get a little overcast and got a few sprinkles..
anyways, i got the sand out of my vagina, and i went about my ride. about mile 48 i was back to feeling good, comfortable on the bike. the rest of the ride was a good one. saw some nice people out on the trail, its pretty cool how it goes through all those little towns up there.. so here we are getting back to the car, and we are about 5 miles short on the computer.... dont know why.. and that kinda sucked.. that might have been where Beercan hit a wall.. but he didn't waiver.. he said lets go.. right on!!! so we went 6 miles and a little just to be over 100... didn't want to stop right there, i wanted to show that century who's the boss.. LOL
all in all it was a great ride... i have to get a road bike.. absolutely have to, its the only way i am going to keep up with you guys in the races this fall
... i can definately see the benefits of the road bike.. Saddle time and pedal time.. we did an 18 mph average, with 3 breaks.. so hopefully i can get the old guy at AJ's to lend me his bike again... and sooner than later i'll get one myself.. already talking to my brother about it... and we can all get out there and hammer some morning..
see ya out on the trails!!
