Back in the Saddle and Then Out Again…

Just so everyone knows, I did start biking this season back on April 14th.  GeoMo, TiCruz and I went to Carlisle.  As I remember it was a perfect ride weather-wise and no one seemed too fatigued by the first excursion.  The charts and stats are below.  What a great start to the 2011 season!

After that my biking days went the way of the Dodo bird for a couple of months.  It started out with a cold and then went south quickly.

Tonight I try again.  I’m not sure where we are headed but it can only be pure hell for me.  My compadres have been biking all along and as you have already heard…I have not.  So it should be fun for them to watch me flop around in my own pool of  sweat, complaining, and pleading them to stop for a hour or so while I catch my breath.

You gotta love biking…

Here is the course data and map as uploaded to Garmin Connect.  We went 8.29 miles in 01:49:15 for an average speed of 4.6 mph.  I hit a maximum speed of 17.7 mph on a downhill.  Conservative ride, no doubt.  Something new this year is the calculation of moving time and average on Garmin Connect.  We had a moving time of 01:09:16 at a 7.2 mph average.  That shows a lot of resting since it was our first ride of the season.  🙂
