RUSA Ride #11: 100k
The weather forecast for today was for some warm weather. Really warm for February in NJ. It was a little damp and cool when I departed from home around 10. But I didn’t need any gloves, and I was wearing summer cycling shoes and cotton socks. Still on the Felt CX bike. And still staying in the little chainring.
As I pulled out of the first controle (7-Eleven on Nassau St in Princeton) I said to myself that I wasn’t really up for today’s ride. I’d had a full workout at the pool this morning, and my legs were heavy from the hills I did yesterday. Not to mention the 65 miles of bike riding. So today was going to be a recovery ride, or maybe just junk miles.
The first half of the ride was pretty easy. Had a nice tailwind for much of it. And since I wasn’t pushing I actually only had to pedal half the ride – the return trip. That when it warmed up. Got all the way up to 65 or so. Maybe a little higher? But it didn’t hit 70. That’s what’s supposed to happen tomorrow while I’m serving jury duty.
