Flying Wheels 2009

I am now trying to prepare for the STP in one day, and so am doing a number of rides. This was my first century of the year, which was a little concerning for me since I had had a 3-month interlude off of the bicycle while we were in Bangladesh. It felt good to be back on a cycle. The entire event was notable for the hills hitting me a little harder than my last ride, the absence of flats, and that I cut at least an hour off of my riding time, feeling a moderate amount of energy at the conclusion of the ride. Thus, it was a good ride, all in all. Meanwhile, I continue to ride with Russ and Luc Andersen, who truly are superb cyclists, learning much about endurance and techniques for better riding.
