I've been riding my bike home on Wednesdays, a 30 mile trip along beautiful country roads with low traffic. It's a fabulous way to decompress.
Since my goal is to do more bike camping, most weeks I ride my Trek 730 and carry 20 extra pounds in my trunk bag to simulate the load I'll carry when I go camping. The first ride home with the extra weight felt really sluggish, and I was relieved when I made it home. But this week, the entire ride felt great, and I considered riding around town when I got home because I still had some energy and legs left. But duty called, and instead, I cooked dinner, did some laundry, and took the dog for a walk. There will be more time for riding this weekend.
Have a great week.
