Turned a corner

November 24, 2020 § 12 Comments

Just undet 100 miles yesterday with countless stops and starts including 50 miles of concretescape from Peoria to Gilbert. Legs felt fantastic and I finally adapted to the backpack. Averaged over 13 mph including two lunch breaks and helping two women change a flat … on their car. New Rivet saddle breaking in nicely; so happy to have persevered. I knew panniers sucked but it took a lot of time and discomfort to make so many adaptations so quickly. Faster, lighter, more nimble, and cheaper: pick four.

Today is a hard day with much climbing.

Tasted … good?
Motel room flats are the best!
Wickenburg sunrise.
So near but downhill tailwind to boot!
Second flat of the day!
Of course the spare turned out to be flat … oh, well!
Not sure I need any more of these.
Blue skies, ruggy, asshey berd.
Lunch with benefits.
Endless Phoenix bike path. Cannot imagine in the heat.
More …
Oreos stashed safely.
Infinite “no” list. No shopping carts?
Saw zero bike-walk.
Not feelin it.
My tub toy.
Dandle while hosts work out!
More toys!
Happiness is a big ol ranch dog.
Skills.
