Great Weekend Ride
Sunday, May 15, 2011
Saturday I went with my cycling group to Glenwood New Mexico. The ride is a 67 mile affair from Silver City. Lots of hills and flats and at least this time....heat and dryness.
I got to ride with a strong rider and I sucked up a lot of wheel time. We averaged about 16 miles an hour for the trip and made it in just a little over four hours and we stopped for lunch! The weather was beautiful, mid 80's and little to no wind.
The ride back today was almost as fast. We have numerous forest fires in the area and the smoke was definitely lingering in the air. Once again the wind was not blowing but I believe it was hotter this morning than it was yesterday afternoon. I have drank enough ice water to sink the Titanic!
Hope everyone had a great, active and safe weekend!
