Back on the Road

I almost went mountain biking today, but decided to ride the road bike instead. I rode to Woods Hole and back, 27 miles, leisurely 17 mph pace. It took about half the ride to feel comfortable again on the skinny tires. Lots of cars on the roads, not used to them buzzing by me after riding alone in the woods all winter. My legs felt good though, I guess the bike commute and riding the mountain bikes paid off. Bumped into Ken on my way home and rode the last four miles with him, enjoyed talking about rides to come, fitness (or lack of), and life in general. Today's ride reminded me why I love riding on the road so much. Looking forward to the season ahead.
