I read this text back later post ride and couldn't help but laugh that it's 5 am and a group of women are totally bummed that the weather is messing with OUR ride plans!
5:18 am- Julie Lightening and cycling bad mix.....waddayathink?
5:19 am- Lindsay Oh...It's lightening ya not safe DANGEROUS, plus if we get rain even worse. Let's go later?
5:20 am- Julie Yup I'm not into being fried. Lets see what happens little later.
5:21 am- Lindsay Good call just saw it don't wanna die. Keep in touch for later!
It is amazing how weather plays a HUGE part into cycling! What is even more amazing to me is that at 5am I have cycling on my mind.....:)
Now on to my first 40!!!!
We finally headed out about 8:30 am we had a PERFECT cloud coverage pretty much the whole ride! We rode in 6 CITIES. How cool is that??? My Garmin died about 5 minute into the ride!!!! ANNOYING, I found I kept looking at it even though it was totally DEAD. Note to self charge more often :)
Drank a TON of water!!!
Jumped on a super cool lil trail somewhere along the way..... didn't know it even existed :)
Stopped at the gas station along the way for more water and a potty break..... Learned a new tip when Julie pulled out money from her saddle bag! She always rides with a few dollars in there for a lil treat/ energy at the gas station! Now to remember to put a few dollars into mine:)
Me and My GIRLS POST RIDE!!!
We had major head wind on part of the way back. NOT so fun, I am sure we enjoyed the wind helping us on our way out though. I kept telling the girls that this is just wrong that this is considered exercise. We chatted the whole time, had a snack break and were enjoying being outside all while burning a whopping 2000 calories!!!!! This is my kind of work out :) 40 miles will soon become many more as I have an announcement coming this week......That I want YOU locals to all be a part of :)
