Interstate road ride happening every 3 years

It was determined that the last time I got with BF and Homey to road ride was back in 2008.  I may have ridden twice with BF last year.  Both times he made me suffer because I was not in shape.  Once was a road ride and the other was a mountain bike ride through TSF.  I don’t think I was blogging at the time (Hmm, I wonder why).

Well we finally all got together on Saturday and whipped around a leisure ride before it got really friggin hot.  We were going to start at 7:30 but some thundershowers were rolling through so we got going at 8.  It was a familiar interstate ride which if you go the right direction is fairly flat.  We went the right direction.  Homey led most of the ride which is great, since he rides professionally on a team and has the lungs to do it.  I tried pulling a couple of times but I don’t block much wind.  So BF and I were content to sit back and enjoy the ride.

It turned out to be a great morning rolling through NH and Taxachusetts.  We did almost 33 miles without too much effort.  As I said Homey put forth the most effort but secretly, I think he likes to pull us along.  Hopefully we can do again in less than 3 years.

Here is the course data and map as uploaded to Garmin Connect.  We went 32.91 miles in 01:49:54 for an average speed of 18.0 mph.  I hit a respectable road bike max speed of 36.6 mph on a downhill.  I thought BF was going to go faster than me on that DH so I let him go ahead of me.  I was incorrect.  He held me back.

No beers after the ride as it was only 10 in the morning.  Even I’m not that bad!!

Let’s do it again Boys as soon as we can!

Later,
