I felt embarrassed for not riding with them so I knew I had to get out and do some mileage. I swapped out the 40mm Happy Mediums from my Chili and put on some dumpster 700x28. I met up with Ron at 7 am and we headed west into a NW wind. We hit Batavia, Maple Park, Sycamore, Genoa all the way up to Woodstock. We arrived at Woodstock with 103 miles. It was 103 miles of headwind. We had some Mexican food and started heading home. The NW wind turned E then SE so we ended up riding 160 miles into the wind. I arrived in the dark and my legs were fried to a tender crisp. I started to think that Ron was also getting tired but it is hard to tell with him. I inhaled some Eggplant Parmesan and turned into a Zombie. I was glad to get out and put in another long one in the month of september. On Monday morning,still sore, I went to the dentist for a very painful root canal.
Hope you got some good riding in,
