This May I'm traveling to California to perform a wedding for my nephew, and I've decided to take a few extra days out there to visit with some family and friends (I'm from there but now living in Minnesota). On one of those extra days I plan to rent a good road bike and enjoy a 110 mile ride around the Palm Springs area. I've been riding regularly for about 10 years now, but in any case that's a long way to go in one day.
So I'm preparing myself by taking several shorter rides each week and then one endurance ride. This week 40 miles, next week 55, the next 70, and the next 90. Then I'll back off the miles for a week or two and hopefully be well rested and strong for the big day!
Well, today is the 40 mile day, and praise be to God, my wife is home this week on spring vacation so she can ride with me. We're looking forward to a grand and glorious day!
