45 Miles on Day 30

Here is the link to the ride Andrew and I did on our 30th and final day of riding our bikes this month. It was a great route (even with the long out and back section on Patuxent River Rd). The weather cooperated for us and it was a fantastic way to end our daily-ride challenge.

Challenge: 30 Days of April

I'm taking part in a challenge between a few of us at the shop. Sometime in March we decided we were going to ride for at least 45 minutes on every day in April. We're now 25 days in; Andrew, Scott, and myself have all managed to ride on each of the last 25 days. I've been trying to take a camera on each ride, or at least take a before- or after-ride picture. The link to the Flickr page with my photoset is here.

The whole endeavor has changed my view on riding a little bit; on group rides I find myself much more content to let people break away, figuring I'll eventually catch back up. I've been spending a lot of time in the little ring so as to rest my leg muscles as much as possible. It's also been a new experience going for short rides every day, instead of long rides a couple times a week with plenty of time in between to recover. It's been a lot of fun and a neat accomplishment... but I'm really looking forward to day 31.
