Always someone better! May 11, 2007 at 9:04 am

I have been feeling pretty good about my prowess on the bike of late. I am doing well. Some of it is definitely because of the equipment. A lot has to do with my fitness. Today I was pushing hard up a hill passing a number of other commuters in the process when an older rider pushed right past me without seeming to even notice. Wow! It is these times that gives me something to aspire to. I think it is a good thing that I get “humbled” every now and again.

Tomorrow I am planning on riding in the first century I have done in twenty years. On one hand I am excited, on the other I am nervous. The longest distance I have done on a bike this century has been 73 miles. That day I could have done another 27 without much of a problem. Fun, Fun, Fun!
