Set out to do about 75 miles on the road bike this morning. Going up the Wabasso Bridge my chain broke and messed up my front derailleur. So I got a ride home and then took out the TT bike for a few hours. Spending a few hundred at the bike shop today is not what I had planned, but it's what I'm doing.
A really nice morning, clear and in the high 60's. It was a bit on the windy side, but you can only rarely have everything and if a little wind is what I have to deal with for warm weather I'll take it.
South winds for the first time in ages. I took the opportunity to do the Skyline Drive route, which is always fun. While the "hills" aren't impressive by most people's standards I love Skyline Drive because it has a small little kick up to 14% gradient. Only takes like 15 seconds to get over it, but it is a damn wall. All in all, a pretty strong 70 mile spin.
Month 1/3rd over and I feel weird saying this is my first AM ride. Cold weather gear arriving today so I shouldn't be too put off by it anymore. The weather this morning was cold, but not nearly as bad as it has been.
Took a nice half century spin up to Roseland and back. My legs felt great this morning, despite something like 13 straight days of training. Tomorrow is a rest day, which I'm looking forward to. Unfortunately I have to work and I'm not looking forward to that.
