I had a awesome ride today! I rode 30 miles in just under 2 hours, and burned 1833 calories!!!!!
I did my first major uphill! Well it was major to me, but minor considering
the other hills that surround my riding territory.
The hill I climbed!!!
Feeling proud about climbing the hill, mind you this hill came at mile 27!!!!
I had a great ride and LOVE my bike :)
Why do I love it so much????
Specialized prides itself in making high quality, smooth riding Woman's bicycles. It is super easy to ride. They use a thinner, lighter aluminum on the Woman's specific bikes. This provides two benefits, they are lighter, and they ride more smoothly. I love the smooth ride!!! The geometry is a bit different than the men's bikes in that the wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear axles) is slightly longer, providing a more stable riding experience. The other thing they do is use a medically tested and designed woman's saddle. Specialized also uses a handlebar that has a shorter reach and drop for smaller hands. (this makes it easier to control the bike, all the while shifting and braking comfortably.) I have felt so comfortable and in control when riding and I know my bike plays a HUGE part in this!!!
What I am not loving so much. . . . . . .
If it's this bad already after 3 daytime rides, can you imagine what it will look like the end of summer???
Monday I am doing my first CANYON ride!!! I am so super excited for it :)
I hope everyone enjoyed BIKE WEEK!!!
