Monday, Day 97
Bike: 21.13 miles
Avg: 14.8 mph
Route: Rt. 322/Honeybrook
Weather: 78* and slightly overcast -- very pleasant
Thoughts: There's something special about passing Amish buggies being driven by girls wearing bonnets when the air is thick with honeysuckle. It wasn't as fast of a ride as I'd hoped, but I continue to get stronger on these hills. Sometimes I bemoan the fact that I can't seem to find a route WITHOUT hills -- making speed intervals possible, or anything other than hill training possible -- but it is always nice to see my ability to manage them improve.
Technical: I'm having some concerns about my cassette and chain rings. It seized up on this weekend's ride, requiring me to perform some roadside maintenance. Tonight it was crunching through the gears again. Time to stop in at Andy's to get some insight.
