Rolling in the Valley
The Rolling in the Valley charity ride today was a lot of fun. The ride was beautiful and challenging. We had great weather for this 50-mile ride in Silver Valley. There were around 75-100 cyclists. The route was challenging with numerous rollers and some steep hills. The roads were great and the ride was well put on. Sirena and I rode with a couple of other MOB riders. There were numerous Project Velo riders, since they were helping put on the ride. I felt pretty good until the end of the ride when I began to cramp. We made it in with the second group. We did the ride in 2 1/2 hours and avg 19.5mph for a hilly course. It was a lot of fun and good training. After the ride we got treated with a pasta lunch and dessert. I will keep the cue sheet for future rides if anyone is interested.
