Saturday Solo Bike Ride: 65 miles

Saturday Solo Bike Ride: 65 miles

Since March I’ve been regularly riding long slow bike routes with the hope of getting rid of dysfunctional mitochondria. Until mid-July or so I was able to keep upping the duration of the rides without too much trouble. But I don’t do well riding in the heat. I can do it. But it’s really a hassle to do so. When my rides started taking 20 to 22 hours to complete it was impossible to cut out the hot part of a mid to late summer day. But I needed a ride today. So I opted for one I’ve never done before.

Chris Slocum designed the route with a start/finish in Tom River. I redesigned it a little so it began and ended in Roosevelt. I started early, and the short ride just zipped by for me since the hot part of the day never hit me. It was super short by RUSA standards – just 65 miles. I was riding my Felt CX bike since I needed a headlight at the start of the ride. I began before daybreak. All in all, it was a very enjoyable ride. Of course, it was much shorter than I would have liked.
