Wed, Mar 5, 2008 - 12.18 mi [Cycling] Details
12.18 mi in 01:05:39 hours at 11.13 mi/h on Specialized Sequoia Elite. [Cycling] This will probably the last ride before going to Solvang. I may take an easy ride tomorrow, but I doubt it. I wanted to do some hill reps today so I came home and did 3 loops around the Home Loop course. The first hill rep reminded me how much I'm NOT Alberto Contador. It also reminded me how much I need to do more hill reps as part of my regular rides. I've been sticking to the flats of the Silver Strand ride.

In any case after I had to stop to catch my breath before finishing the first rep, I reminded myself of riding within myself. The next two loops were relatively easy. Perhaps I could push it a bit more, but for the ride in Solvang this Saturday, I want to take advantage of the flat, and just get over the one or two larger climbs. :)
Route Home Loop
Mon, Mar 3, 2008 - 20.80 mi [Cycling]
20.80 mi in 01:22:00 hours at 15.22 mi/h on Specialized Sequoia Elite. [Cycling] A good ride, although I can always feel it when more than a couple of days go by without getting on the bike. My left thigh was cramping and I never quite got comfortable on the bike. I did have a nice easy pace on the way out.

On the way back I cruising with the wind behind me, then I got passed by a woman with a full DeWalt racing kit on, I can only imagine she's on the team. I hung on her back wheel but she turned it around about half way from my 10 mile return. I didn't follow her for long, but she made me realize how much I was dogging it. I need a riding partner that's a bit faster than I am. Perhaps it's time to join a club? Solvang is this Saturday!
Route Silver Strand
Wed, Feb 27, 2008 - 14.84 mi [Cycling] Details
14.84 mi in 01:00:30 hours at 14.72 mi/h on Specialized Sequoia Elite. [Cycling] The last few weeks have been hard for riding. It's been rainy a lot, as seen on the Tour of California telecasts, and it seems I've had meetings after school a lot lately. Today I had a meeting as well and didn't get on the bike until 4:30. It was a good ride however. On the way I out I fought the regular Silver Strand wind. On the way back another cyclist passed but I decided to get on his wheel. We were moving at a good clip until he got a flat. Solvang Half-Century is barely a week and a half away. Yikes!
Route Silver Strand
Sat, Feb 23, 2008 - 33.44 mi [Cycling] Details
33.44 mi in 02:37:26 hours at 12.74 mi/h on Specialized Sequoia Elite. [Cycling] had a good ride today. I rode with Molly most of the way, then I put in a fast 10 miles in the middle. It was a new route today. I haven't mapped it on bikeley yet. Started at Bonita rode down the Sweetwater river path then towards the silver strand path. It was a bit late so I didn't go all the way to Coronado. Fighting a cold righ tnow too.
