I rode the same loop I did a couple months ago and added a climb. Legs felt strong, but overall I didn’t think I felt as strong on this ride compared to the first time I did it. Interesting to think about that.
On the way back, when the person I was riding with suggested we climb an additional hill, I thought ‘what the heck’ and off we went. It was getting warm towards the end, but not too warm. By the time we made it home we were over 50 miles.
