A Beautiful Day to Ride

Today was a beautiful day outside. I couldn't believe it truthfully, over the winter I wasn't sure the sun would ever rise again. So I worked my morning shift got my car from the repair shop and heading back to my favorite area to road ride, the Valley. On the way in I stopped into my local LBS to pick up two Camelback podium water bottles. I've only heard good things about them and I've thrown out almost my entire collection of water bottles because they were grungy. While there I grabbed the last Bontrager Race light lux mtb saddle they had for half price. I've been looking all over for this saddle and I couldn't beat the price.

I got out to the Valley later than anticipated but it turned out to be perfect. The sun was starting to set so the temp was perfect, hot enough so I could finally wear my summer jersey with no warmers but not to cold. I did the Bib Boy route from the Century Cycles page and I have to say I felt good the entire time. My Garmin said I did 27 miles with 1350 feet of climbing at an average speed of 17.5 mph. All my averages where right where I wanted them to be.

Tomorrow I will be at Quail Hollow before work to take my Full suspension Gary Fisher Procaliber out for a test ride before Sundays ride at Mohican State Park. Hopefully, all goes well. One last thing, I had planned to do the Races at The Lake Series Saturday but will skip instead to hit up the OMBC Mountwood race next Sunday.
