Saturday, a great day for LSD
Thats Long, Slow Distance riding. Todays forecast in Denver was supposed to be 59 with maybe 11mph winds. Well, weather.com was a bit off. We probably faced winds that were greater than 30mph. At times, we were blown off of the road. Anyway, Chris P, Erik, Jeremy and I rode road bikes from Chris P's house to Carter lake for a JANUARY century. 101 miles and something like 6,000 ft of climbing. It was Jeremy's first century ever, and way sooner than he thought he could ride that far. I felt pretty good, as I did a fair share of climbing, and even attacked on some of the hills. After todays ride, I shattered my previous PR. 474 miles of bike riding in January. Denver winters are harsh, ha ha.
